Thompson announces committee assignments

State Senator Dave Thompson (R-Lakeville), has announced his committee assignments for the 2013-2014 legislative sessions.

Thompson, who represents Farmington in the Senate, was elected to his second term in the Minnesota Senate in November. He will serve as the top Republican Member on the Senate Tax Reform Division. He will also serve on the Senate Education, State and Local Government, and Tax Committees.

"I look forward to working on taxes, education and state and local government issues," Thompson said. "I am particularly honored to serve as the ranking Republican member on the Senate Tax Reform Division Committee. Education must remain a priority in our state, and I am prepared to do the necessary hard work to help make our schools more effective and our students more successful."

The Senate will reconvene in Regular Session at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
