House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) on Tuesday announced committee assignments for the 2017-2018 Legislature.

The 27 committees, subcommittees and divisions that House Republican leadership named in late November are at the core of the legislative process. They act as filters, deciding which of the thousands of bills introduced during the two-year biennium will get a hearing and continue to move through the legislative process toward becoming law.

The 2017 session is scheduled to convene at noon on Jan. 3.
