Following the Senate’s release of their committee membership last week, the House released their committees late yesterday, signaling the real beginning for legislative activity in this new term. Now that committees in both chambers have been finalized, consideration of new bills will likely commence in the coming weeks.
The only surprise from the newly released House list, was the addition of a special select committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates. The House policy committees and appropriations subcommittees released yesterday are:
Universities and Community Colleges
Senators LaSata (C), Horn (VC), Bizon, MacDonald, Zorn, Irwin (MVC), Hertel
The League tracks legislation through most of these committees and works closely with the Appropriations, Commerce/Economic Development, Local Government, Tax Policy/Finance, and Transportation committees. League members are encouraged to reach out to their State Representatives and Senators on these important committees.
Chris Hackbarth is the League’s director of state & federal affairs. He can be reached at 517-908-0304 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
