State Rep. Jim Runestad, R-White Lake, had a perfect voting record during his first term as member of the Michigan Legislature in 2015-2016.
“I am pleased that for the second year in a row I was able to achieve a perfect voting record,” said Rep. Runestad. “I know some legislators may have health issues or family disruptions that may prohibit them from being able to make it for all the votes. However, it is imperative that we show up and take the votes that will impact the State of Michigan.”
Rep. Runestad serves House District 44, which includes the residents of Highland Township, White Lake Township, Springfield Township, Milford Township and parts of Waterford Township, as well as the Village of Milford.
Last session, Rep. Runestad served as the vice chair of the Committee on Families, Children, and Seniors and is also a member of the House Committees on Insurance, Judiciary, and Local Government. 2017-2018 session committee assignments are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
“In my second term, I will focus on ensuring that legislation introduced is consistent with our state and federal constitutions and with our Bill of Rights,” Rep. Runestad said. “Our forward momentum for economic growth must continue to be a primary focus while correspondingly constraining the scope and size of our state government.”
