STATEHOUSE (Dec. 16, 2016) — State Rep. Dale DeVon (R-Granger) was recently selected to serve as vice chair of the House Committee on Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications.

He was also named to the House Committee on Education and the House Committee on Family, Children and Human Affairs.

“The Education committee will continue to look for ways to support all Hoosier educators and students,” DeVon said. “Directing more dollars to the classroom will be a main focus this year as we hear public testimony and review proposed legislation to better serve our schools. I’m also excited to get to work on a wide range of issues that deal with Indiana’s energy policy and to continue making our state a great place to live for Hoosier families.”

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.
