AUGUSTA – Last Thursday, all 151 State Representatives received their committee assignments from Speaker of the House Mark Eves.
“I’m excited and honored to serve on the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee,” said Daughtry. “As a graduate of Brunswick public schools, I’m particular excited about this assignment and look forward to helping improve Maine schools.”
The Educations and Cultural Affairs Committee oversees the state Department of Education, along with the university and community college system, the Maine Arts Commission, Maine State Library, Maine State Museum and Maine Public Broadcasting Corporation.
“I am pleased to have been appointed to the Marine Resources Committee,” Saxton said. “In my district, commercial fisheries are an economic driver and I want to ensure the health of this important industry.”
The full legislature has 16 joint standing committees which will begin work early in January. A list of committee members can be found at 126th Legislature.
