State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) has been appointed to serve in a new leadership role as the Minority Spokesperson for the Senate Energy and Public Utilities in the 103rd General Assembly.
“It’s an honor to take on the responsibility of being the Senate Republicans’ Minority Spokesperson for the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee,” said Sen. Bryant. “It’s no secret that Illinois has faced several recent energy-related issues, whether that be rate hikes or potential power plant closures. I look forward to the Committee’s first meeting, so we can begin tackling these issues and ensure that our state’s energy policies benefits everyone who calls Illinois their home.”
Sen. Bryant will continue to serve as the Minority Spokesperson for the Senate Behavioral and Mental Health Committee. She will also serve as a member of the Agriculture, Appropriations-Education, and Education committees for the 103rd General Assembly.
“We are proud to have Sen. Bryant as our Minority Spokesperson on Energy and Public Utilities,” said Illinois Senate Republican Leader John Curran (R-Downers Grove). “Sen Bryant’s Southern Illinois district includes a broad portfolio of energy resources. Her comprehensive understanding of traditional and new energy sources, and the labor and expertise required to get them delivered, will be key in helping us craft policies to keep Illinois energy safe, reliable, and affordable.”
Sen. Bryant will assume her new assignments once the Illinois Senate reconvenes on February 7.
