LANSING, Mich., Jan. 13, 2023 — Speaker Joe Tate (D-Detroit) announced yesterday the chairs and members of the Michigan House of Representatives standing committees, subcommittees and appropriations subcommittees. State Rep. Will Snyder (D-Muskegon) has been appointed member of the Appropriations and Regulatory Reform committees. He was also appointed to the following Appropriations subcommittees: member of Corrections and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and chair of the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO).
“As a member of the Committee on Committees, I was fortunate to be a part of the process that developed House committees for the 102nd legislature,” Snyder said. “I understand the crucial role committees play in creating legislation and budgets that positively impact the lives of working families across our state, and I’m extremely excited about the diverse skill-set and life experiences my fellow caucus members will bring to their respective committees. Many of my central priorities as a lawmaker are closely linked with the committees that I am a part of. I’ll be sure to push for policies that reduce the burden of inflation and encourage economic development across our state. The Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity has a big hand in creating business growth, community building, affordable housing and job opportunities. For that reason, I’m especially grateful that I have been appointed to serve as chair of the LEO subcommittee — this position will allow me to have a direct impact on economic growth in our region and the entire state. I’m very much looking forward to working alongside my colleagues, so that together we can keep Michigan moving forward.”
