State Rep. Jay DeBoyer, of Clay Township, has been named to the House Elections Committee along with the Economic Development and Small Business Subcommittee on Housing – giving people in northern Macomb County and southern St. Clair County a voice as crucial legislation is discussed in the Legislature.
The House Elections Committee is responsible for considering all legislation pertaining to elections and campaign finance law. DeBoyer has over a decade of experience overseeing elections as the clerk and register of deeds for St. Clair County prior to serving in the Legislature.
“I am committed to upholding a fair and effective elections system in our state,” DeBoyer said. “The efficiency of our elections process and ensuring a system people can have faith in were major issues I heard about from people in our area before I became a state representative. This new assignment allows me to be their voice on this panel and work for common-sense solutions.”
The Economic Development and Small Business Subcommittee on Housing will work to reduce barriers to home ownership, increase housing inventory and look for other ways to help people find affordable housing through renting or owning.
As part of the committee changes, DeBoyer will no longer serve on the House Military, Veterans and Homeland Security Committee.
