ST. PAUL, MN—Rep. John Petersburg, R-Waseca, announced today his committee assignments for the 2015-2016 legislative session. Petersburg, who will begin his second term in January, will serve on three House committees: State Government Finance, Transportation, and the powerful Taxes Committee. Committee assignments were chosen by Speaker-designate Kurt Daudt, R-Crown. Petersburg was appointed Vice Chair of the Transportation Committee earlier this month.
"I'm looking forward to the important work ahead on these three committees," Petersburg said. "Transportation and tax policy are two of the biggest issues at the Capitol, and will likely be major issues as we look ahead to the 2015 session. Good roads and sensible tax policy are priorities for families and businesses alike in Greater Minnesota, and will be a main focus of my committee work."
