first_img05Jan Rep. Outman has perfect voting record for 2013-14 session Categories: News State Rep. Rick Outman is part of a distinguished group of Michigan legislators with a perfect voting record during the 2013-2014 legislative session.The House took 1,345 roll call votes, and Outman, R-Six Lakes, did not miss a single vote. The nonpartisan website compiles the voting histories of lawmakers in the Michigan House and Senate.“Voting is a very important part of my job, and I take it very seriously,” Outman said. “I listen to what the hard-working families in Montcalm and Gratiot counties are concerned about, and my vote reflects those concerns, giving residents a strong voice in state government.”The Legislature last session approved measures to help improve Michigan’s economy and create jobs, along with Outman-sponsored issues such as modernizing the Michigan Potato Commission to meet the shifting needs of potato growers. He also was instrumental in getting the OK-2-SAY hotline bills passed that will help end bullying in schools.“We have taken a common-sense approach in making government more efficient and effective,” Outman said. “I will continue to champion legislation that will give all Michiganders a brighter future.”#####last_img read more
