2019 — A look ahead

The 100th Legislature is up and running.

I am beyond humbled to have the opportunity to serve as your state senator, and I would like to give a special thank you to those who had confidence in me to be your voice in Lansing.

As things continue to pick up, I am eager to get to work and excited to represent our district in the state Capitol. We are off to a good start so far in 2019. We are already analyzing budget projections to ensure we maximize investments in schools, roads and other crucial state programs, and we are working to lower auto insurance rates in Michigan.

My staff and I are available anytime if you have questions or opinions about legislation in Lansing, have difficulty with contacting or working with state departments, or have any other concerns.

There are many ways to contact my office. My office address is suite 4600 of the Binsfeld Senate Office Building, which is located at 201 Townsend St. in Lansing.

My mailing address is State Senator Jon Bumstead, P.O. Box 30036, Lansing, MI 48909-7536. My Lansing office phone number is 517-373-1635, my fax number is 517-373-3300, and my email address is SenJBumstead@senate.michigan.gov. For additional information, you may visit my website at www.SenatorJonBumstead.com.

I have also received my committee assignments for this legislative term. I serve as vice chair for the standing committees on Appropriations and Natural Resources, and chair of the Natural Resources and Environmental Quality Appropriations Subcommittee. I am also a member of the following standing committees: Education and Career Readiness; Finance; and Energy and Technology. I also serve on the K-12 and Michigan Department of Education and General Government Appropriations subcommittees.

Finally, I will be hosting office hours throughout the district several times a month, so residents can stop by for a conversation, receive publications or other state resources, and share their thoughts on how to continue Michigan’s comeback.

It is a tremendous privilege to serve West Michigan in the state Legislature. I am committed to representing our district in Lansing, strengthening our economy, helping craft a responsible budget, lowering auto insurance rates, fixing our roads and making decisions that continue to move Michigan forward. I look forward to working with my colleagues in both the House and Senate, as well as our new governor, to continue building a better Michigan for future generations.

Sen. Jon Bumstead, R-Newaygo, represents the 34th state Senate District, which includes Muskegon, Newaygo and Oceana counties.
