SHREWSBURY, Mass. — State Rep. Matt Beaton (R-Shrewsbury) has announced his appointment to the committees on which he will serve during the 188th Legislative Session.
For the 2013-14 session, Beaton has been assigned to the House Committee on Ways and Means, Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture, and House Committee on Ethics.
"I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve on the Ways and Means Committee where I will have the chance to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to chart a course that is fiscally responsible for all the taxpayers in the Commonwealth," said Beaton in a written statement.
He continued: “I’m looking forward to continuing my work on the Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture Committee where I can lend my background and perspective as an avid outdoorsman and conservationist.
