State Rep. Thomas Albert today was named House Appropriations Committee chair for the upcoming 2021-22 legislative session by Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth, filling an important leadership position tasked with crafting the state of Michigan budget.

“I am grateful for this new opportunity to serve the people of Michigan,” said Albert, of Lowell. “There are challenges ahead, but I am committed to ensuring we do the best job possible for our state’s families, job providers and taxpayers.”

Albert was recently elected to his third term in the Michigan House. He currently serves as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, leading a subcommittee related to the state prison system. He also serves on panels related to School Aid, Military and Veterans Affairs and State Police, and Agriculture and Rural Development. In 2017-18, Albert chaired the House Financial Liability Reform Committee.

A former investor for the State of Michigan Retirement Systems, Albert has expanded and continued his expertise on state financial matters during his time in the Legislature. His legislative work has helped improve the finances of the state retirement system.

“We must do all we can to safely navigate COVID-19 while preserving our economy,” Albert said. “That is the key to maintaining support for K-12 education and the essential services Michiganders rely upon every day. I look forward to working with anyone willing to help guide our state through this pandemic to brighter days ahead.”
