LANSING – State Representative Andrew Beeler (R-Port Huron) has been named Vice Chair of the House Military, Veterans and Homeland Security Committee for the current legislative term. He was also chosen to serve on the Health Policy, Tax Policy and Education committees.
Prior to his election to the House, Beeler spent five years as a Surface Warfare Officer in the United States Navy and was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal for his service aboard the USS Decatur (DDG 73). Prior to receiving his commission, he attended the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
“As a veteran, I understand the sacrifices our military heroes and their families make for their communities and country,” Beeler said. “It’s an honor to be in a position to help our returning service members get the benefits they deserve.”
Rep. Beeler made it clear that he was “very excited” with the committee assignments announced earlier today.
“I am very excited that Speaker Wentworth and the House leadership team have given me this opportunity to fight for the taxpayers of Michigan,” Beeler continued. “I look forward to working for Michigan’s students, developing a coherent strategy to the COVID-19 response and giving taxpayers a voice in the legislative process.”
Beeler is in his first term representing the 83rd House District, encompassing all of Sanilac County and parts of St. Clair County, including Port Huron.
Rep. Beeler talks about House passage Wednesday of his HB 4345, which prohibits insurance companies from penalizing Michigan consumers when they purchase cheaper prescription drugs from out-of-network providers. Rep. Beeler’s legislation was part of a larger package of healthcare cost reform bills approved by the House on Wednesday.
