Sen. Zorn announces committee assignments

LANSING, Mich. — In his second term, Sen. Dale Zorn will continue to lead the Senate Local Government Committee and add new responsibilities of serving on three Senate Appropriations subcommittees.

“I look forward to continuing to put my more than three decades of local government experience to work to help improve our communities, our economy and the lives of Michigan residents,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “We achieved much last term to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and I will continue to work with our local leaders to develop innovative solutions to local challenges.”

Zorn will also serve on the committees on Regulatory Reform and Families, Seniors, and Veterans.

In addition to the policy committees, Zorn will serve on the Appropriations subcommittees for Capital Outlay, Transportation, and Universities and Community Colleges.

“The work of these subcommittees will help us fix the roads, support our community colleges and public universities, and invest in needed infrastructure like the new armory in Dundee,” Zorn said. “The committee assignments will enable me to continue to stand up for our veterans, protect our children and seniors, and support our jobs providers.

“It’s time to work together to keep our eight years of positive momentum on track and build a better future for all Michigan residents.”

A full list of Senate committees and their memberships will be available online later this week at http://www.senate.michigan.gov/committee.html.
