FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has reappointed Senator Roger Katz (R-Kennebec) to serve a two-year term representing Maine on two National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) committees including the Budgets & Revenue Committee and the Legislative Effectiveness Committee.
“I am glad to have been chosen to continue serving on NCSL’s Budget and Revenue Committee,” said Sen. Katz. “This committee provides a great opportunity to get together with legislators from across the country to discuss topics that are important to Maine such as income taxes, pensions and post-employment benefits. I look forward to the work we will accomplish over the next two years.”
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.
These are two 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 Katz is one of the most respected legislators in Maine because of his ability to work with both sides of the aisle to find solutions. I am certain he will be an excellent addition to this committee.”
