|Info||Representative Nofs has just completed serving his third term in the Michigan House of Representatives on behalf of the citizens of the 62nd District, which includes most of Calhoun County. |
During his tenure in the House, Mike served as Minority Vice Chair of the House Energy and Technology Committee. In addition, Mike was a member of the Appropriations Committee where he served on the Department of Community Health subcommittee as well as Minority Vice Chair of the State Police and Military and Veterans Affairs and Investigations subcommittees.
His ability to work across party lines has earned him the respect of his colleagues and the distinction of having over a dozen bills signed into law including the rewrite of the Michigan Telecommunications Act.
