Rep. Gomberg Committee Assignments A Foundation for Supporting Rural Economies
Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek has announced legislative committee assignments for the 2015 Legislative Session, and the central coast and coast range is on track to win big. State Rep. David Gomberg (D-Otis) has been assigned coveted spots on the full Joint Ways & Means committee, the co-chairmanship of the Ways & Means Transportation & Economic Development Subcommittee, as well as spots on the Ways & Means Natural Resources Subcommittee and the House Rural Communities, Land Use, and Water Committee.
Whether its dredging, forestry, dairy farming, rural transportation infrastructure, or small business issues, the central coast and West Valley are on track to have a strong voice for their concerns this session.
“I’m honored with the responsibility and confidence the Speaker has shown, appointing me to the important Ways and Means budgeting committee and placing me in charge of one of the most import sub-committees,” Gomberg said.
“Natural Resources, Transportation, and Economic Development are an ideal fit for this large and diverse district.”
The 2015 Legislative Session will formally convene on January 12th, with hearings and votes beginning in earnest February 3rd. Key issues this year will be how to strengthen Oregon’s K-12 school system, provide dignity, security, and choice to older Oregonians, and keep our infrastructure intact for future generations.
“I could not be more pleased with these new assignments and the opportunities they provide for our Coastal district. Highways, ports, bridges, small business development centers, tourism, and special economic projects will all be coming to the Committee I co-chair or the policy committees I sit on,” Gomberg added.
