State Rep. David Martin, of Davison, has been appointed to the House Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Committee by Speaker Jason Wentworth.
The committee receives policy issues related to the use and management of Michigan’s natural resources and environmental stewardship. This includes, but is not limited to, hunting and fishing, wetlands, trails, recycling, hazardous waste, forest management, dredging, air quality and water.
“I have a deep appreciation for our state’s rich natural resources and hold a love for hunting that has been passed down in my family for generations,” Martin said. “I know many in our area share these same values, and I’m looking forward to representing our community’s interests as I consider policy changes in these areas.”
Martin is serving his first term representing people in the communities of Clio, Davison, Montrose and Otisville, as well as the townships of Davison, Forest, Genesee, Montrose, Richfield, Thetford and Vienna. He also serves as vice chair of the House Workforce, Trades and Talent Committee, and as a member of the House committees on Energy, Commerce and Tourism, and Military, Veterans and Homeland Security.
At a 9/11 ceremony at the state Capitol, state Rep. Dave Martin today paid tribute to Ronald “Mike” Bierlien of Clio, a paramedic who passed away from COVID-19, and welcomed Chief Brian Flewelling of the Davison-Richfield Area Fire Department as his guest to the event.
Rep. Martin talks about the small business roundtable he held this week in Davison, saying that issues like COIVD and state regulations are among the chief concerns of family and local businesses in Genesee County.
State Rep. David Martin today said the people of Michigan deserve answers from the state’s Unemployment Insurance Agency after a letter from the federal government revealed the state agency hid an error from the public for six months before recipients were notified.
