LANSING, MI (WTVB) - State Representative Ken Kurtz of Coldwater will continue to serve as chairman of a major public policy committee of the State House. Kurtz Thursday was reappointed to serve as chair of the House Families, Children and Seniors Committee during the 2013-14 legislative session.

Kurtz led the committee during the last legislative session, and helped to move forward legislation to protect Michigan's faith-based adoption agencies and landmark bills to ensure proper insurance coverage for people with autism and autism spectrum disorders.  House Speaker Jase Bolger made the appointment.

“I'm honored to have the faith and confidence of our House speaker to carry out the important responsibility of helping protect all of Michigan's residents, from the very young to our senior population," said Kurtz.  "As we look ahead to the new session, I'm particularly interested in making sure children in need of a home can find loving and caring opportunities.  And we must continue to be mindful of the needs of our elderly population."

Kurtz also said the committee will review how state departments deal with issues involving children, families and senior citizens, and work to eliminate any misuse of taxpayer dollars or fraud.

The 58th District lawmaker also was appointed to three additional committees including, Military and Veterans Affairs, Criminal Justice, and Legislative Council. 

"I look forward to working with my colleagues to help bring good ideas and common-sense reform to the important areas these particular committees deal with."
