State Rep. Lisa Posthumus Lyons, R-Alto, today was appointed to serve as Chair of the House Education Committee as well as Chair of the House Committee on Elections & Ethics for the 2013-14 legislative session.
“I am honored to continue my service as Chair of the House Education Committee, as well as begin serving as Chair of the House Elections & Ethics Committee,” said Lyons. “As a mom with children in our public schools, I am very passionate about making sure all kids have quality opportunities in education, no matter what ZIP code they live in.
“It will certainly be a challenge as we look to reform our public school system to ensure we are providing a 21st century education to all of Michigan’s children, and I look forward to working with all of those interested in putting students’ needs first.
“On the Elections & Ethics committee, I am eager to lead on issues that will ensure efficiency, transparency and integrity in Michigan’s elections.”
Lyons, who has chaired the education committee since March 2012, also will serve on the committees on Insurance; Tax Policy; Financial Services; and the Legislative Council.
