I received my committee assignments from Speaker Lockhart today. Here they are:
Transportation - Standing Committee
Given the importance that transportation will be playing in Ogden in the future, I asked to be placed on this committee.
Political Subdivisions - Standing Committee
Although not a super glamorous committee assignment, I asked to be placed on this committee to help gain perspective on our State's current political system and how its division affects policy and operations.
Economic Development, Business and Labor - Appropriations Subcommittee
This is an exciting committee assignment. This will give Ogden a front row seat at opportunities for economic development and growth as they become manifest to our committee. You will likely be hearing a lot from me about opportunities that arise from this committee assignment.
And finally, if you want to see where I will be sitting, here is a map of the House Chamber (click to enlarge):
Fun factoid: I will also happen to be the second most youthful Legislator to serve in the House this next term.
