Bumstead appointed vice chair of Appropriations Committee

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Jon Bumstead announced on Monday that he has received his Senate committee assignments for the 100th Legislature.

Bumstead will serve as chair of the Natural Resources and Environmental Quality Appropriations Subcommittee and vice chair for the standing committees on Appropriations and Natural Resources.

Bumstead will be a member of the following standing committees: Education and Career Readiness; Finance; and Energy and Technology. He will also be a member of the K-12 and Michigan Department of Education and General Government Appropriations subcommittee.

“A bulk of what we do as legislators happens during the committee process,” said Bumstead, R-Newaygo. “While I look forward to working with each of my new colleagues, I am especially ready to start my work on the Appropriations Committee. I am honored to have been appointed vice chair of the committee, and it is my hope that we make this the ninth year in a row the Legislature approves a fiscally conservative, responsible budget well ahead of schedule.”
