Hawaii Lawmaker Elected to Serve on National Conference of State Legislatures’ Executive Committee
DENVER – Last week at the National Conference of State Legislatures’ 2011 Legislative Summit in San Antonio, lawmakers from around the country elected Representative Pono Chong to serve on the 2011-2012 NCSL Executive Committee. “We are pleased to have Representative Chong’s expertise on NCSL’s Executive Committee,” said incoming NCSL President and Kansas state Senator Stephen Morris. “His participation in NCSL over the years has been a key part of the organization’s success.” The NCSL Executive Committee is the governing body of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Comprised of 63 members, the Executive Committee drives the organization by supervising and controlling the affairs of the Conference, its committees, and finances, as well as deciding the organization’s ultimate positions on matters of public policy. Representative Chong has been an active member of the National Conference of State Legislatures throughout his tenure as a state legislator. He has served on NCSL’s Budget and Revenue Committee and presently is the Vice-Chair of the Committee and the Task Force on Military and Veterans Affairs. “It is an honor for me to serve on NCSL's Executive Committee," said Rep. Chong. "I look forward to working with my colleagues to help the states, and the nation, in this critical economic recovery period."
