State Rep. Graham Filler will chair a temporary panel that will help establish which committee assignments Republican state representatives will receive for the 2023-24 term.
Filler, R-Clinton County, was tapped by Republican Leader-elect Matt Hall to chair the party’s Committee on Committees, which will assess the interests and experience of both incoming and returning legislators and make committee recommendations to the incoming speaker.

Filler was recently re-elected to the Michigan House of Representatives. He represents the 93rd House District, which includes Clinton County and portions of Gratiot County. When the new Legislature convenes in January, he will represent portions of Clinton, Gratiot, Saginaw, Montcalm and Ionia counties and serve as an assistant floor leader for the Michigan House Republicans.
