127th Legislature gets rolling

I am honored to be appointed House Chair of the Government Oversight Committee of the new Legislature.  I was first appointed to the Committee during the 125th Legislature, and served as Chair in the 126th.

My Senate Co-Chair is Roger Katz of Augusta and I am looking forward to working together for the people of Maine.

The Committee has oversight over the Office of Program Evaluation and Government Accountability (OPEGA).  Our current work plan can be found here.  Past reports that give a good idea of what we do can be found here.

It is interesting and important work and I am very proud to be a part of it.
