State Rep. Bronna Kahle will serve on the newly created House Ways and Means Committee for the 2019-20 legislative term, providing a unique opportunity to help Lenawee County and the entire state of Michigan on a variety of important issues.
Committee appointments were announced this week by House Speaker Lee Chatfield.
During this two-year term, the Ways and Means Committee will be one of a select few panels with the authority to report legislation to the House floor for consideration. Reviewing proposals that previously have been considered by other House policy committees will improve debate, analysis and accountability.
Topics reviewed by Ways and Means could include health policy, tax policy, education, transportation, regulatory reform and many others.
“I am honored by this assignment because it has such broad potential to help our families, friends and neighbors through meaningful, positive change,” said Kahle, of Adrian. “Children in our schools, workers in our factories and offices, seniors in our retirement communities – it’s a great opportunity to help Lenawee County residents from all walks of life in all sorts of ways.”
Kahle, in her second House term, brings experience to her new role. She served on House committees related to tax policy, health policy, families, and workforce and talent development during the 2017-18 term.
