Overweg to chair House Ag & Natural Resources Committee

NEW HOLLAND, S.D. (WNAX) – State Representative Marty Overweg of New Holland will be Chairman of the House Ag & Natural Resources Committee in the 2021 legislative session. He says he didn’t go looking for the spot.

Overweg says there are some immediate financial issues hitting ag producers.

Overweg says the committee will see a variety of issues.

Overweg was appointed to the House seat by Governor Kristi Noem just before the start of the 2020 session. He then survived a primary election in June with no general election race in District 19.
