House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) announced the new Representative’s committee assignments on Monday. “Education is an issue that is very important to Representative Olsen, and I believe he will be a strong voice of advocacy for students and taxpayers,” said Durkin.
Olsen’s education committee assignments include:
- Community College Access & Affordability
- Elementary & Secondary Education, School Curriculum Policies
- House Education Funding Task Force
In addition to the three education committees, Olsen will also serve on the Judiciary-Criminal, Public Utilities, Renewable Energy & Sustainability and Public Private Partnerships committees. “These all represent areas of interest to me, and I look forward to joining the legislative debate when legislators return to Springfield in November,” Olsen said.
