LANSING — Yesterday, House Democratic Whip and state Representative Robert Kosowski (D-Westland) was appointed to the Michigan Commission on Uniform State Laws (MCUSL) by Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter (R-Mount Pleasant). 

The MCUSL is the Michigan delegation to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.  The delegation meets with commissioners from other states to try and bring uniformity to state law where wide variations between states could complicate the resolution of interstate problems.  Members of the MCUSL include two appointees by the Speaker of the House, two appointees by the Senate Majority Leader, and three members appointed by the Legislative Council.

“It is truly an honor that Speaker Cotter chose me to fill the vacancy on this commission,” Kosowski said.  “I look forward to working with my colleagues and other members and hope to add another perspective in our discussions.”
