Demmer Appointed to Key Education and Healthcare Committees

Dixon… On the heels of being appointed Republican Conference Chairman two weeks ago, State Representative Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) announced that he has been appointed to key education and healthcare committees. Those appointments include the Human Services Committee, Human Services Appropriations Committee, Higher Education Committee and the Special Committee on Mental Health. He was also re-appointed to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR).

Rep. Demmer has been charged with a heavy workload of-ten committee assignments for the 100th General Assembly. “I’m ready to get to work on the important issues assigned to these committees. Education and healthcare are major policy areas that affect every community in the state. They also comprise a significant portion of the state budget, which means they’re key parts of ongoing budget negotiations. I look forward to working with my colleagues to get Illinois back on the right track,” said Demmer.

In addition to the appointments listed above, Rep. Demmer was also appointed to the Cybersecurity, Data Analytics & IT Committee, the Elementary and Secondary Education: Charter Schools Committee, the Rules Committee, and as Minority Spokesperson of both the Healthcare Availability Committee and the new Cost Benefit Analysis Committee.
