On Tuesday, Minnesota House of Representatives Speaker-designate Kurt Daudt unveiled the new committee chairs for the 2015-16 legislative session. Among the new committee chairs is Representative Bob Dettmer (R-Forest Lake) who will be leading the Veterans Affairs Division.
“I’ve long been an advocate for Minnesota’s veterans and look forward to bringing my experience to this new leadership position,” said Rep. Dettmer. “These men and women have bravely served our country, and I will work to ensure veteran voices are heard when it comes to crafting laws and policy in Minnesota.”
Rep. Dettmer is currently the Republican lead on the State Government Finance and Veterans Affairs Committee. Additionally, after serving 25 years in the U.S. Army Reserves, Dettmer retired as a Chief Warrant Officer 4 in 2011.
