State Rep. Pauline Wendzel has been named to four House committees for her first term in the legislature. Rep. Wendzel will serve as the vice-chairwoman of the House Energy Committee as well as the vice-chairwoman of the Commerce and Tourism Committee. Rep. Wendzel will also be serving on the Regulation Reform and Agriculture Committees.
“I’m honored to have been appointed the vice-chair of these two important committees,” Wendzel said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance a solid policy agenda that will continue our state’s economic comeback and improve the lives of the people of Southwest Michigan. I appreciate the confidence Speaker Chatfield has placed in my ability to be a leader on these committees during my first term in office.”
House committees review all legislation that affects their issue area and make recommendations as to whether the full House should take up the bills. Committee chairs decide when bills are heard, run the committee meetings and organize informational hearings to help lawmakers and the public understand important issues.
