LANSING, Mich., Jan. 12, 2023 — With the 102nd legislative term underway, committees for the 2023-24 legislative session have been announced, and representatives are settling into new offices. House Democrats are also gearing up for holding the majority, and, as they do so, many are defining their legislative priorities. State Rep. Christine Morse (D-Texas Township), now serving her second term in the House, has been appointed to the Appropriations Subcommittees for the Departments of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and Insurance and Financial Services; the Departments of Military and Veterans Affairs and State Police; Corrections; and General Government. She will also be serving as the chair of the Department of Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee.


“Committee work is an important part of the lawmaking process, and I am eager to take on the responsibility of chairing the Appropriations Subcommittee for DHHS,” Morse said. “With a Democratic majority, the 102nd session will offer unprecedented opportunity to move a people-centered agenda forward. Public health and safety have been and continue to be at the top of my legislative priorities — everyone in Michigan deserves to have access to affordable, quality health care, including mental health resources. I am excited to work to provide the resources needed to improve health care policies and related resources in Michigan.”


Due to statewide redistricting in 2022, many representatives’ districts have changed, including Morse’s. This also means changes to how constituents can contact lawmakers.


“Due to redistricting, I am now serving the 40th House District,” Morse explained. “My email has not changed; however, my office location and telephone number have. My staff and I are always grateful to hear from constituents — please don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hearing from and continuing to serve the people of Kalamazoo County.”
