The rising legislator will serve on the Health Policy, Local Government and Transportation committees. Rep. Neeley is in his first term serving House District 34.

“I came to Lansing to serve the people of Flint and the state of Michigan, and by lending my voice and experience to these committees, I can do just that,” Neeley said.

Rep. Neeley is humbled by the legislative leadership for recognizing his lawmaking experience from his years on the Flint City Council and positioning him on powerful House committees.
