STATEHOUSE (Dec. 11, 2020) – State Rep. Dale DeVon (R-Granger) was recently reappointed to serve as chair of the House Family, Children and Human Affairs Committee.

DeVon said he is passionate about helping children and regularly meets with youth at the St. Joseph County Juvenile Justice Center. He said he will continue drawing on his experience to help guide him as he examines state policies impacting Hoosier families and at-risk children.

"Many youth and families are experiencing new challenges and disruptions to their normal lives due to the pandemic, and I will be a strong advocate for them," DeVon said. "As we continue to monitor the progress at the Department of Child Services, we must also ensure we are doing all we can to support children in need of a safe, loving place to call home."

As a member of the House Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee, DeVon will also examine issues like broadband access and cost-effective and reliable energy solutions.

DeVon said House standing committees will meet throughout the legislative session, kicking off Jan. 4, to consider legislation impacting Hoosiers.
