In September 1992, then Speaker of the House, Representative Joseph DeAngelis, and then Senate Majority Leader, Senator John J. Bevilacqua, appointed the Blue Ribbon Commission on the General Assembly.
The Commission was charged with developing a broad blueprint for the General Assembly in the 21st century. The Commission's efforts were part of a process which resulted in four year terms for the State's general officers and the adoption of comprehensive campaign finance reform and ethics reform legislation.
