The Assembly Labor and Employment Committee Records consist of 56 cubic feet of material reflecting the activities of the committee. Although the name of the committee changed several times, its primary mandate remained the same: to introduce and investigate legislation on issues of labor and employment.
The first Assembly committee dedicated to legislation relating to issues of employment was created on Saturday, January 10, 1880. On that day, Assembly Member Braunhart "moved to amend Rule Nineteen by adding a subdivision, to be numbered thirty-eight, to read: A Committee on Labor and Capital." (Assembly Journal, January 10, 1880, p. 45). Although the name of the committee has changed several times, the basic mandate has remained the same for well over a century. In every legislative session since 1880, there has been an Assembly committee dedicated to the various issues of labor and employment.
