STATE HOUSE - State Rep. Michael Chippendale (R-Dist. 40, Coventry, Foster, Glocester) has been appointed to serve on the House Oversight and Environment & Natural Resources Committees for the 2013-2014 legislative session.
The Committee on Oversight reviews the operation and efficiency of various state departments and agencies, fulfilling the Legislature’s role following implementation of Separation of Powers. The Environment & Natural Resources Committee focuses on legislation involving environmental regulation from agriculture to watershed protection, and the safeguarding of the state’s natural resource base.
“These committee assignments reflect Mike’s deep dedication to efficient and effective government on one hand, and his commitment to protecting Rhode Island’s natural resources and District 40’s farming heritage. The House is extremely fortunate to have someone like Mike who brings a natural interest in these two important areas for the General Assembly,” said Minority Leader Brian C. Newberry.
Chippendale was first elected to the General Assembly in 2009, and is beginning his second term in the House of Representatives. He lives in Foster.
