Rep. Phil Green of Millington recently was appointed as chair of a panel within a national organization that will help him shape proposals to benefit Michigan’s farm families.
Green was appointed to lead the American Legislative Exchange Council’s agricultural subcommittee, which is part of the organization’s Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force.
ALEC is a membership organization for state legislators dedicated to limited government and free markets. The organization is designed to help legislators exchange ideas on public policy.
“Agriculture is the backbone of Huron and Tuscola counties – and it has been for generations,” Green said. “This appointment is a perfect fit, and I am confident it will help us develop ideas to help keep farming strong for generations to come.”
ALEC says its Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force helps “promote the mutually beneficial link between a robust economy and a healthy environment.” The task force works to develop model policy related to agricultural technology, regulatory reform, air and water quality, rural development and several other areas.
