Senate President Robert Stivers recently appointed Sen. Ernie Harris, R-Crestwood, to the Council of State Governments’ Transportation Public Policy Committee.  CSG, a national organization based out of Lexington encourages multi-state problem solving, develops leadership skills, and fosters collaboration among all three branches of state government.

The Transportation Public Policy Committee provides a forum for state leaders to address emerging challenges and issues arising from dynamic transportation and infrastructure policy conditions in the states.  As a member of the committee, Harris will study emerging trends, innovative and effective solutions, and viable policy positions and response projects.

“I am pleased to be a part of this committee to get more information about what other states are doing to advance transportation and infrastructure issues and to share policies we’ve implemented in Kentucky,” said Harris, Chair of the Kentucky Senate Transportation Committee.

CSG is a nonpartisan organization, founded in 1933, to promote excellence in state government through the exchange of ideas and policy information.  Its members are from all three branches of the 50 states and five territories.
