“I want to personally thank Representative Bies for his hard work and commitment while serving as Chairman of this Study Committee and leading on this issue during his legislative career. I look forward to working with Legislative Council, and my fellow committee members, in the coming weeks and months as we ask the tough questions, have a spirited debate, and put forth sound proposals.”
