FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has appointed Senator David Woodsome (R-York) to serve a two-year term representing Maine on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Labor & Economic Development Committee.
“Last session, I had the opportunity to represent the Maine Senate on the Energy, Transportation and Agriculture Committee. I’m glad to have been chosen to continue this experience on another committee this term. It’s important that as a legislature, we learn from policies and ideas that have been implemented in other states,” said Sen. Woodsome.
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 Labor & Economic Development 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 Woodsome has a unique ability to find common ground on some of the most complex and important issues of our time, and I am confident he will bring that skill to the committee. I cannot think of a better choice for this appointment.”
