Dixon… State Representative Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) was appointed to several key committees as the new legislative session begins. Rep. Demmer will serve on committees that are especially important to constituents in his district, including those overseeing healthcare, education, and agriculture.
“I’m looking forward to working on key legislative topics in healthcare, education, and agriculture,” said Rep. Demmer. “I know these topics are of particular importance to people in my district and serving on these committees will be an opportunity to directly influence key legislation.”
In all, Rep. Demmer will serve on the following eight committees; Agriculture and Conservation, Higher Education, Human Services, Elementary & Secondary Education – Charter Schools, Health & Healthcare Disparities, and Youth & Young Adults, in addition to the Appropriations committees for both Human Services and Elementary & Secondary Education.
“We are facing a $6 billion dollar hole in the budget for FY15. Appropriations for the two committees I will be serving will bring some unique challenges, but we will work to make sure funding is a priority for these areas, especially education,” added Rep. Demmer.
