“I am pleased people and communities I represent will have a seat at the table during a vital time of the legislative process,” Bierlein said. “These positions will allow me to make our voices from the 97th House District heard in Lansing as we review proposals and craft the future of our state. I am eager to get started and help ensure state government is accountable to and efficient for the people it represents.”
