STATEHOUSE (Dec. 10, 2018) — State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) was recently reappointed to serve as the vice chair of the House Select Committee on Government Reduction.

Lucas was also reappointed to the House Education Committee, the House Public Policy Committee and the House Elections and Apportionment Committee.

“The committee process for potential new laws is imperative,” Lucas said. “Committee members can hear public testimony and ensure that the best legislation makes it before the full House for further consideration. I look forward to continuing to work on these committees and tackling many topics this session.”

Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election. House lawmakers will convene at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 3 in the House Chamber for the first day of the 2019 legislative session.
