State Rep. Douglas Wozniak has been appointed to serve on four of 21 House policy committees for the 2023-24 legislative session. Among those four appointments are two as the minority vice-chair on two influential committees in which he intends to continue working to protect Michigan’s growing senior population and fight for Michigan workers and job providers.
Wozniak will serve as minority vice-chair of both the House Labor Committee and House Families, Children and Seniors Committee. He will also serve on the House Judiciary and Ethics and Oversight committees.

Wozniak, an elder law attorney, has led bipartisan efforts to protect senior citizens across the state, including his work to combat elder abuse and demand accountability for the Whitmer administration’s decision to send Covid-infected patients into state nursing homes.
