Earlier this month, Speaker of the House Beth Harwell named State Rep. Susan Lynn to the Labor and Economic Development Committee of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).
The Labor and Economic Development Committee is one of eight standing NCSL committees. The committee covers state and federal issues related to labor, employment, workforce, economic development, international trade and cultural affairs. The committee educates Congress and federal agencies about state concerns related to federal actions that impact the states, based on policy positions adopted by the states. In addition, the committee serves as a forum for legislators and legislative staff to learn about and share information about policy options being considered in states.
"I am very honored to be named by the Speaker of the House to represent the State of Tennessee at a national organization," Lynn said. "I appreciate her trust very much, and I look forward to being the voice of conservatism and free enterprise that she intends for me to present."
