Maine Legislative Update –

Senator Amy Volk is currently serving her second term in the Maine Senate where she serves as Assistant Majority Leader. She represents the people of Senate District 30, which includes most of Buxton, most of Scarborough and all of Gorham. Prior to being elected to the Senate, she served two terms in the Maine House as the Representative for House District 127, coastal Scarborough.

During her legislative service, Senator Volk has been a member of the Governor’s State Workforce Investment Board as well as the Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee (LCRED). She is currently the Senate Chair of LCRED and a member of the Environment and Natural Resources Committee.

LCRED’s jurisdiction includes the Department of Labor and the Department of Economic and Community Development. Within these departments are the Office of Professional and Financial Regulation, Maine State Housing Authority, the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME), and the Maine Office of Tourism. Throughout her time on the committee, the legislature has cleaned up waste and abuse at the Maine State Housing Authority, reformed workers’ compensation laws to reduce litigation and create more predictability for injured workers and employers and created a mechanism for evaluating economic development programs.

Senator Volk is best known recently for having successfully championed legislation to help victims of human trafficking.

In addition to her legislative service, Senator Volk is active in the local community. She serves as a member of the Worship and Kids City Welcome teams at The Rock Church. She also served as the Board Secretary of the Root Cellar for many years and is a current charter member of the board of directors for Maine Connections Academy, a statewide public charter school.

Senator Volk resides in Scarborough with her husband, Derek, the President of Volk Packaging Corporation, a third-generation family business. They have four children.
