ALBANY — Sen. Betty Little has been reappointed chair of the Senate Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks and Recreation Committee for the 2013-14 legislative session, a position she has held the past two years.

“I’m very happy to be reappointed given the tourism industry’s importance to the North Country economy,” Little said in a statement.
