STATEHOUSE (July 14, 2020) – State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) was recently selected to serve on the Interim Study Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources.

"Indiana's agriculture industry continues to help fuel our economy," Eberhart said. "In the coming months, the committee will be studying conservation, reforestation of Indiana forest land and programs for agricultural soil health through carbon farming funds."

Eberhart was also appointed to the Indiana White River State Park Development Commission and the Compliance Advisory Panel.

According to Eberhart, committees will likely be held in-person with an option to participate virtually this year to help limit the potential spread of the coronavirus, but more details will be released in the coming weeks. He said any new process will remain transparent and open to the public. Committee hearings are livestreamed online and then archived so they can be watched later at iga.in.gov. The full list of topics to be studied can be found at iga.in.gov.
