FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has reappointed Senator Brian Langley (R-Hancock) to serve a two-year term representing Maine on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Education Committee.

“I’m glad to once again have a seat at the table to discuss education policy with my cohorts from around the country,” said Sen. Langley. “As someone who has spent 30 years in the classroom and close to a decade serving on the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee in Augusta, I have a vested interest in drafting policies that best serve our children and our communities.”

NCSL is a national bipartisan organization based out of Washington, D.C. with a mission to improve the quality and effectiveness of state legislatures by providing legislators and staff with tools, resources and information to craft sound policy. They also promote innovation and communication between state legislatures to ensure the states maintain a strong, cohesive voice in the federal system.

The Education Committee is one of nine bipartisan policy committees that will meet on a semiannual basis each year in Washington, D.C. and at the NCSL Legislative Summit. This year’s annual summit will be held in Boston.

Senate President Thibodeau said, “Senator Langley has a very innovative approach to education, having led numerous efforts to make college more accessible and affordable for young Mainers. He has gained respect from both sides of the aisle for his work as chair of the Maine Legislature’s Education and Cultural Affairs Committee, and I am certain he will be a tremendous asset to the NCSL committee, as well.”
