LANSING, Mich., Jan. 15, 2023 — Speaker Joe Tate (D-Detroit) announced last week the members of the Michigan House of Representatives’ standing committees, subcommittees and appropriations subcommittees. State Rep. Amos O’Neal (D-Saginaw) has been named House Appropriations Corrections Subcommittee chair, Appropriations Committee vice chair, a member of the Department of Health and Human Services, Joint Capital Outlay, and General Government Appropriation subcommittees, and a member of the Labor Committee.

“I am honored to take on greater responsibility in my committee leadership positions,” O’Neal said. “As vice chair of the Appropriations Committee and chair of the Corrections Subcommittee, I am in a unique position. My committee assignments reflect my lifelong experience in business and the time I’ve spent in my community. With a prison in Saginaw, I have many constituents who put on a uniform and go to work as correctional officers. As chair, I will make sure we provide the funds Michigan’s correctional facilities require to keep Michiganders safe and secure. I can’t wait to get started and to contribute through this legislative process as a member of several wonderful committees.”
