Saint Paul, MINN— On Tuesday, December 20, 2016, House Republicans unveiled committee assignments for the 2017-2018 legislative sessions. Representative Tama Theis (R-St. Cloud) was named to four committees: Government Operations and Elections Policy, Education Finance, Health and Human Services Reform, and the Subcommittee on Aging and Long-Term Care. Theis was appointed by House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, to serve as the Vice Chair of the Subcommittee on Aging and Long-Term Care.

“There is a lot of work to be done next session, and I look forward to passing commonsense policies that work for folks in Central Minnesota and across the state,” said Rep. Theis. “Serving on these committees provides me with a wonderful opportunity to work directly on a number of our shared priorities including addressing our state’s health care cost crisis, providing Minnesota kids with a world-class education and advocating for our most vulnerable. It’s an honor to serve my community, and I welcome your input as we begin to craft legislation and work toward meaningful solutions to address many of our state’s pressing needs.”
