State Rep. Peter Pettalia will chair the newly formed House Committee on Tourism to consider ways to encourage a healthy economy and better quality of life for state residents.

“I feel very privileged to be in a position to help Northeast Michigan and the entire state by chairing the new House Tourism Committee,” said Pettalia, R-Presque Isle. “I’m looking forward to working with area chambers of commerce, visitor bureaus, recreation groups and all the numerous interests who enjoy and rely on the unique offerings we have that add to our quality of life, as well as those who choose to vacation in in this great state.”

Pettalia, who is serving his second term in the House, will also be a member of the House committees for Energy and Technology, Financial Services, Local Government, and Transportation & Infrastructure. He was on the local government and financial services committees last term.

“I’m very pleased to be seated on these ideal committees. I cannot wait to get started this legislative term,” Pettalia said.
