State Rep. Ben Frederick today was selected to serve as majority floor leader for the Michigan House during the 2021-22 legislative term, the second-ranking position in the chamber.
Frederick, of Owosso, said he is honored to have the opportunity to serve in a leadership role and eager to work with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to move Michigan forward.
“I have always strived to bring legislators together to do what’s best for the people of our state, and I plan to take that same collaborative approach in my role as floor leader,” Frederick said. “It means a great deal that my colleagues have put their trust in me to take on this role and the people of mid-Michigan have given me the privilege of continuing to serve them in the House.”
As majority floor leader, Frederick will help decide which proposals are considered by legislators, set the session schedule and lead parliamentary procedure on the House floor, among other duties. Elected to work alongside Frederick as Assistant Floor Leaders were Reps. Julie Calley of Portland and Ann Bollin of Brighton Township.
