FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has reappointed Senator Amy Volk (R-Cumberland) to serve a two-year term representing Maine on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Labor & Economic Development Committee.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue my work on this important committee,” said Sen. Amy Volk. “I look forward to spending the next two years discussing issues that are of great importance to Maine, such as right-to-work laws, workforce training and decreasing barriers to employment with colleagues from around the country.”
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, “As chair of the Maine Legislature’s Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee, Senator Volk has demonstrated her ability to navigate complicated labor laws while supporting Maine’s businesses, allowing them to grow our economy. She will bring very valuable insight to this committee, and I cannot think of a better choice for this appointment.”
