Rep. Tommy Brann today was appointed to continue his work helping shape the Michigan state budget in the 2021-22 legislative term.
Brann was appointed to the Michigan House Appropriations Committee by Speaker Jason Wentworth. Brann will chair the subcommittee on Military and Veterans Affairs and State Police. He also will serve as a member on subcommittees for School Aid, Higher Education and Community Colleges, Corrections and Transportation.
“The state budget is a statement of priorities – and mine are very clear,” said Brann, of Wyoming. “I will focus on getting kids the resources they need to be successful in school. I’ll focus on keeping the public safe, fixing our roads, and improving our communities in all sorts of ways. The budget is also an important way to improve the economy, and I’ll continue to fight for job providers and the families that depend on them throughout my time here as your state representative.”
Brann also served on the Appropriations Committee last term.
Rep. Tommy Brann today joined his legislative colleagues encouraging Michigan residents to safely participate in ‘Restaurant Dine-In Day’ on Jan. 16 – showing support for cooks, servers and everyone connected with the industry.
Speaking on the House floor Monday morning, prior to final passage of SB 748, a $465 million supplemental appropriation assisting Michigan health providers, families and small businesses combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, Rep. Brann, a restaurant owner for almost 50 years, talked about the impact of the pandemic on Michigan family restaurants.
