Chuck Thomsen's Committees
Committee Membership is the most important way to identify a legislator's area of influence. It matters to have those representing you sitting on committees that affect you.
Chuck Thomsen began in Natural Resources and Business/Transportation due to his background, but has recently become a member of every major Education committee due to his leadership, reputation, and knack for consensus-building on K-12 funding.
Sen. Thomsen's committee membership:
Full Ways and Means: All budgetary matters.
Education Budget Subcommittee: Always championing higher K-12 and community college funding, even voting no on many budgets since they haven't been enough.
Senate Business and Transporation (Vice Chair): Pushing for better road infrastructure and working to improve Oregon's economy
Senate Education: Advocating the improvement of Oregon's quality of education, and enhanced job training in schools
Emergency Board: Convenes during emergencies when Legislature is out of session.
Chuck Thomsen isn't a legislator who reads talking points and grandstands. He values relationships, and works to find common ground to cut through polarization.
