The change, effective immediately, was announced Friday in a memo from Senate President Donna Mercado Kim:
"In keeping with the practice of having an odd-numbered committee membership, Senator Solomon has volunteered to step-off that committee."
No further details were given. A telephone message left Friday afternoon with Solomon's office was not immediately returned.
Earlier this month, Solomon was one of two members added to the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee. The composition of the committee had been an issue during the debate over civil unions in 2009. Senate leaders had placed an even six members on Judiciary and the committee eventually became deadlocked.
