The new Legislature took office in early January, and soon after, the new members of the House and Senate education committees and K-12 appropriations subcommittees were named. These are the people who have a large say in setting education policy and deciding per-pupil funding, so we always pay special attention to these announcements.
The new committees are listed below. While it’s always a great idea to establish good relationships with the legislators who represent your communities – inviting them into your school, etc. – it’s especially important if they serve on an education committee.
House Education Committee
Rep. Pam Hornberger, Chair, R-Chesterfield Township (Macomb and St. Clair counties)
