Representative Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) is proud to announce that she will serve on four legislative committees for the upcoming two-year session. Rep. Dykema will join, for the first time, the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing and the Joint Committee on Public Health. She will also continue serving on the Joint Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture and the Joint Committee on Veterans & Federal Affairs.

“I am honored to be chosen for these four important committees where I’ll be able to weigh in on a broad range of issues that my constituents care deeply about,” Dykema said. “I’m particularly eager to begin working with my colleagues to tackle cost containment in the healthcare industry. Today’s high cost of health care and health insurance is hampering our economic recovery and crippling our small businesses. It’s also a huge financial burden on our families and seniors, and I’m eager to play a role in finding needed solutions.”

Rep. Dykema will also continue her work on the Joint Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources, & Agriculture and the Joint Committee on Veterans & Federal Affairs, both of which she has served on for the past two years.

“Supporting returning veterans and advocating for environmental protection are issues I’m passionate about,” said Dykema. “As a returning committee member, I will continue to focus on improving policy around these issues which are so important to the Commonwealth and the people I represent.”
