STATEHOUSE (Dec. 19, 2016) — State Rep. Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) was recently reappointed to serve as chair of the House Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedures.

He was also named as vice chair of the House Committee on Joint Rules, and will serve on the House Committee on Employment, Labor and Pensions and the House Committee on Judiciary.

“Committee meetings are a vital part of the legislative process because they not only offer insight from various members of the committee, but also foster communication between the citizens of Indiana and experts on the policies under consideration,” Torr said. “I am ready to get to work crafting legislation that will keep Indiana heading in the right direction.”

Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election. On Jan. 4, House lawmakers will convene at 1:30 p.m. in the House Chamber for the first day of the 2017 legislative session.
