Legislator will serve on temporary Committee on Committees
State Rep. Luke Meerman will play a key role in recommending House committee assignments for the 2021-22 Michigan House legislative session after being named a member of the Committee on Committees by Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth.
Meerman said he is looking forward to helping establish committee assignments based on each individual lawmaker’s professional background, personal interest, and knowledge.
“Thank you to Speaker-elect rep. Wentworth for having faith in me for this great role for the people of Michigan,” Meerman said. “I’m looking forward to serving the many communities in Michigan, including Ottawa County families.”
The Committee on Committees will assemble the rosters and schedules for the House policy and appropriations committees and subcommittees for the 2021-22 term. Members of the temporary Committee on Committees will work with both caucuses to determine the best fit for each representatives’ interests and expertise.
State Rep. Luke Meerman, of Coopersville, today called out the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration for its overzealous enforcement of the governor’s executive orders – which have created significant hardships on small business owners and employees who are simply trying to make ends meet.
A group of Republican lawmakers this week introduced a plan protecting Michigan residents and job providers from excessive penalties for non-compliance with rules implemented unilaterally by the governor.
