State Rep. Graham Filler has been appointed to a key role helping determine the policy priorities of Michigan House Republicans for the upcoming 2021-22 legislative session.

State Rep. Steve Johnson of Wayland will co-chair the committee, which is made up of both returning and incoming state legislators.
