State Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, has been appointed to serve on the Legislative Water Commission.
The Legislature created this commission this year to review water policy reports and recommendations of the Environmental Quality Board, the Board of Water and Soil Resources, the Pollution Control Agency, the Department of Natural Resources and other water-related reports.
The commission will consist of 12 members, six from the Senate and six from the House of Representatives.
"I'm honored to serve on the Legislative Water Commission," said Ruud. "I had a number of constituents who encouraged me to serve because they felt our district needed a voice on the commission. I can provide the voice for our district when it comes to these important water related issues. I'm looking forward to the opportunity."
The Legislative Water Commission will hold its first meeting in the upcoming months where it will select a chair, vice chair and secretary.
