Lauwers announces committee assignments

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dan Lauwers on Tuesday announced his Senate committee assignments for the 100th Legislature.

Lauwers has been assigned two committee leadership roles. He will chair the Energy and Technology Committee and serve as vice chair of the Insurance and Banking Committee.

In addition, Lauwers will serve as a member of the committees on Agriculture, Economic and Small Business Development, Government Operations, Regulatory Reform, and Transportation and Infrastructure.

“The committees are where legislators work with members on both sides of the aisle and examine bills in detail before recommending them to the full Senate,” said Lauwers, R-Brockway Township. “It is a critical part of the process of a bill becoming law, and I’m excited to be asked to serve on committees of significance to the Thumb of Michigan. I look forward to working with my colleagues on these committees.”
