Rep. Liz Pike’s committee assignments finalized
Rep. Liz Pike has received her finalized committee assignments for the 2017 session.
She has also received a new assignment as member of the House Labor and Workplace Standards Committee. The committee considers issues relating to industrial insurance, unemployment compensation, collective bargaining, family leave, safety and health standards, and employment standards such as wage laws and employment discrimination.
“This is really an important committee when it comes to jobs. Employers in Clark County and across the state are being hit hard with having to pay a higher minimum wage, worker compensation rates and more,” said Pike, R-Camas. “This is a committee where I plan to work hard to protect employers and jobs, while ensuring fairness for all employees.”
Pike said her experience as a former member of the Camas City Council gives her a unique local government perspective that is helpful as she serves on the House Local Government Committee. She is also pleased to again be appointed to the House Transportation Committee where she has been working on issues relating to youth driver safety and building a coalition of lawmakers to work on new bridge solutions between Clark County and Portland.
The 2017 legislative session, which began Jan. 9, is scheduled for 105 days.
