FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has appointed Senator Ronald Collins (R-York) to serve a two-year term representing Maine on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Natural Resources & Infrastructure Committee.

“I have been involved with NCSL for a number of years,” said Sen. Collins. “I am pleased to once again have been appointed so that I can continue to work with legislators from around the country on policy issues of great importance to Maine.”

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 Natural Resources & Infrastructure 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 Ron Collins has a thorough knowledge of infrastructure issues, having served on the Transportation Committee on all four of his terms in the Maine Senate. He will be an excellent asset to the NCSL’s Natural Resources & Infrastructure Committee.”
