Representative Howitt receives 2019-2020 committee assignments


Boston – State Representative Steven Howitt (R-Seekonk) received appointments to several key legislative committees for the 2019-2020 session, per House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading).

Representative Howitt has been re-appointed to the Joint Committee on Transportation, where he is Ranking Minority Member. He is also the Ranking Minority Member of the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure, as well as the House Committee on Redistricting.

The Seekonk legislator has been named a member of the Joint Committee on Export Development. This relatively new committee, created in 2017, is responsible for reviewing all legislative matters concerning the Commonwealth’s exports, trade, and international competitiveness; the cultivation and promotion of Massachusetts as a global economic leader; the development of partnerships between the Commonwealth and other states and nations related to trade and commerce; and the support of Massachusetts goods and services in national and international markets.

Representative Howitt has served on the Transportation and Consumer Protection committees since he was first sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives in 2011. This marks his second term serving on the House Redistricting Committee and his first as a member of the Export Development Committee.

“I look forward to continuing my service to my constituents and I am planning to maintain my consistency of representation, having never missed a roll call since taking office,” said Representative Howitt. “I will continue to be a strong and available advocate for my constituents in carrying out my committee responsibilities over the next two years. I am thankful for their support and am here to serve the people of the 4th Bristol District.”

A third generation Seekonk resident with over 30 years of public service to the community and to the Commonwealth, Representative Howitt represents the 4th Bristol District, which includes the communities of Seekonk, Rehoboth, and portions of Norton and Swansea.
