STATEHOUSE (Dec. 16, 2016) — State Rep. Bob Heaton (R-Terre Haute) was recently reappointed as vice chair of the House Committee Financial Institutions.

He was also named to the House Committee on Insurance and the House Committee on Natural Resources. Heaton will continue serving as Caucus Majority Whip.

“Committees play an integral role in the legislative process, as lawmakers gather input from the public and review bill proposals,” Heaton said. “My experience working as president of my own financial service business gives me a unique perspective when hearing policies in committee. I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues as we consider legislation that will continue to move Indiana forward.”

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.
