Now in her second term, Representative Rendon serves as chairwoman of the Insurance Committee and the vice chairwoman of the committee on Families, Children & Seniors.

Additional Committees Representative Rendon serves on include

  • Judiciary Committee
  • Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Committee
  • and the Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates

Over the last few years, the representative has joined Michigan’s oil and gas leaders on legislative tours around the state, showcasing several aspects of the industry from exploration and production to processing and transportation. She has happily welcomed folks from across the patch into her office at Legislative Education Day and has been a stronger supporter of Michigan’s home state energy production.

In her words,

“I am very supportive of the oil and gas industry in general, because I believe that our own natural resources can be readily "harvested" to offer Michigan residents a source of affordable fuel and low-cost options for heating their homes. I am in awe of the new technology being used today by oil and gas producers that makes accessing these abundant natural resources such a streamlined process.  The good paying jobs that go along with the processing and transporting of the end products to provide fuel and home heating are a big bonus to those of us who love our Northern Michigan lifestyles.  With such advanced techniques for extraction and processing being used right here in Northern Michigan and with the vast reserves of natural gas available here, the people of Michigan should feel confident knowing that their fuel and home heating needs will be easily met at a low cost for many many years to come”. -Representative Daire Rendon
