As talk in Lansing heats up over education, tax policy and government operations, Shelby Township and Utica residents will have a direct line to the committees in charge of these issues through state Reps. Pete Lund and Jeff Farrington.
Rep. Pete Lund (R-Shelby Township), serving District 26, has returned for a second term as the House Majority Whip and will chair both the Insurance and Government Operation committees as well as sit on the Education committee.
"We have been able to make some significant regulatory reforms over the past two years," said Lund, in a prepared statement. "The changes we've made are helping Michigan residents better afford to live and work in this state, and improving their quality of life. I have worked hard so Michigan taxpayers see their money put to good use, and I look forward to continuing to work on these important issues."
Farrington (R-Utica), serving District 30, has been appointed to chair the Tax Policy Committee and serve on the committees for Commerce, Energy and Technology, and Financial Services.
House committees review all legislation that affects their issue area and make recommendations as to whether to the full House should take up the bill.
