STATEHOUSE (Dec.16, 2016) — State Rep. Jeff Ellington (R-Bloomington) was recently selected to serve on four House standing committees, including the House Committee on Local Government.

He was also assigned to the House Committee on Natural Resources, the House Committee on Financial Institutions, and the House Committee on Interstate and International Cooperation.

“Each lawmaker brings unique expertise and perspective to our committees,” Ellington said. “As a retired firefighter and entrepreneur, I will always keep the needs of our local community at the front of my mind as we consider legislation.” 

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.
