Dist. 28 Sen. Ryan Maher (R- Isabel) Greetings from Pierre, we just finished our first week of the 89th Legislative  ession, which started on January 14. I am proud of the fact that we serve as citizen lawmakers and take great pride in our accessibility to all of you as constituents in our district. Our regular jobs and involvement in local community activities allows us to stay grounded and held accountable. This will be my eighth and final session as your Senator for District 28. It’s hard to believe eight years have come and gone so fast. In the Senate over this past summer we saw three of our fellow Senators resign for various reasons; however the governor has made the appointments to have them replaced by the start of session. As a result of this many of the committee assignments have been changed and shuffled a bit. Over this next session, I will be serving on the Senate State Affairs Committee, the Senate Commerce and Energy Committee, and finally I was moved to be the vice-chairman of the Senate Education Committee. I will also serve as a Majority Whip to the Republican Caucus.
