State Rep. Pauline Wendzel has been named to four committees for her second term in the Michigan House of Representatives. Rep. Wendzel will serve on the powerful new Michigan Rules and Competitiveness Committee and retain her position on the Regulatory Reform Committee. Rep. Wendzel will also serve on the Commerce and Tourism Committee and serve as the Vice-Chair of the Elections and Ethics Committee.
“I’m excited to serve in this new capacity,” Rep. Wendzel said. “As a member of the Rules and Competitiveness Committee, I look forward to working on a variety of topics and helping turn policy ideas into final products that can be signed into law. The people of our state elected us to govern, not fight, and I’m committed to doing just that – developing and advancing sound policy initiatives this legislative term and moving our state forward.”
Rep. Wendzel continued, “I’m also pleased to be returning to the House Regulatory Reform Committee. In the last term, I was able to shepherd a bipartisan 16-bill package that helped Berrien County small businesses through this committee. I’m looking forward to continuing my work of cutting red tape so our small business can recover, grow, and thrive.”
House committees review all legislation that affects their issue area and make recommendations as to whether the full House should take up the bills. Committee chairs decide when bills are heard, run the committee meetings, and organize informational hearings to help lawmakers and the public understand important issues.
