Posted: May 12, 2017 | Senator Gratwick

AUGUSTA — Sen. Geoff Gratwick, D-Bangor, has been appointed to the National Conference on State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Natural Resources and Infrastructure Committee.

The appointment was made by the President of the Senate. Sen. Gratwick will serve as a representative from the Maine Senate.

“Maine’s vast forests, clean air and clean water are intricately tied to our way of life – and how we navigate our state,” said Sen. Gratwick. “I am honored to be appointed to this committee and look forward to pushing the national discussion forward on these issues.”

Gratwick serves on the Environment and Natural Resources Committee in the Maine Legislature.

The Natural Resources and Infrastructure Committee is one of nine standing committees of the NCSL. The committee educates Congress and federal agencies about state concerns. In addition, the committee also serves as a forum for state legislators and legislative staff to learn about and share information regarding programs and initiatives in other states. In particular, this committee has jurisdiction over state and federal energy, environment, agriculture and transportation programs, legislation, regulations and policies.

NCSL is a national organization that serves the interests of state legislatures by providing states support, ideas, and connections for policy and effectiveness.
