Patrick said:  "Each one of these committees is going to play a vital role in helping us as we move through the session."  They will meet periodically as necessary to provide important imput into the legislative process.

CPA and TSCPA member Mike Reitmeier has been appointed to the Tax Policy working group by Patrick.  Reitmeier, from Waco, is with the public accounting firm of Jaynes Reitmeier Boyd & Therrell, P.C.
