He represents Michigan’s new 91st House District, which includes most of Montcalm County and the Kent County townships of Solon, Cedar Springs, Nelson, Spencer, and Oakfield, as well as the city of Belding and Otisco and Orleans townships in Ionia County.
“It’s time to get to work addressing the issues that matter to the people in our communities,” Rep. Outman said. “This term, I am dedicated to advocating for working families to keep more of their own money amid unprecedented inflation, defending parents who deserve greater involvement in their kids’ education, bolstering public safety, and more. I look forward to continuing to talk with my neighbors about their concerns and ideas.”
Rep. Outman also announced today that he has been appointed to serve as Republican vice chair of the Transportation, Mobility and Infrastructure Committee. He will also sit on the Judiciary, Tax Policy, and Energy, Communications and Technology committees.

State Rep. Pat Outman (R-Six Lakes), who serves on the House Energy Committee, issued the following statement celebrating the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) approval of the Line 5 Tunnel permitting process: “Michiganders encountered significant energy setbacks over the past week, with rising electricity rates and the looming threat that Gov. Whitmer’s green energy mandates […]
“Rate increases like this are just the beginning of what’s ahead for Michiganders under Democrats’ Green New Deal. Just one day after the governor signed the plan into law, we’re already seeing detrimental impacts.”
“Michigan families are already paying too much for electricity that isn’t reliable,” Outman said. “Rural communities like ours have experienced energy outages in recent years that only stand to get worse under these bills. The people of Michigan don’t want this plan, that’s why Democrats are stepping in to force it on them regardless of what local communities have already decided.”
