State Rep. Nick Milroy, D-South Range, announced Wednesday his appointment as the ranking Democrat on the Assembly Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage Committee.
“I’m very pleased to serve as the ranking member and look forward to working with the committee members on both sides of the aisle,” Milroy said in a prepared statement. “The 73rd Assembly District has a great interest in natural resources and a large amount of public land. The decisions made by this committee will greatly affect this area of the state.”
“Rep. Milroy brings a wealth of knowledge to the committee,” Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca said. “His experience as a biologist, outdoor enthusiast and a certified hunter safety instructor make him the go-to person in our Democratic Caucus on natural resources and sporting issues.”
In addition, Milroy will serve on the Rural Affairs, Veterans, and Environment and Forestry committees. He will continue to serve on the Special Committee on State-Tribal Relations.
“These committee appointments reflect my commitment to representing the interest of the people who elected me to the State Assembly. I will continue to be a strong voice in Madison, supporting my fellow veterans and protecting our pristine lands,” Milroy stated.
With the start of the new legislative session, Rep. Milroy has a new staff person. Lori Youngman will be working half-time in the office with long-time aide Mary Lou Keleher. Youngman has more than 24 years of experience working in the Legislature and will be helping constituents with state issues. She is also working half-time for Rep. Janet Bewley, D-Ashland.
