STATEHOUSE (July 1, 2019) – State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) will serve on the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, which will commemorate 100 years of women’s right to vote.

Negele authored the law creating the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission to organize and promote activities throughout the 100th anniversary year of the Nineteenth Amendment.

“These women worked to ensure women had a voice and a vote,” Negele said. “They deserve our recognition and gratitude, and what better way to honor their work than with celebrations across Indiana throughout the 100th anniversary year. I am so happy to be part of the planning for this commemoration, and look forward to celebrating with Hoosier women across the state.”

Negele will also serve on the Interim Study Committee on Corrections and Criminal Code, the Commission on Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises, and the Midwest Interstate Passenger Rail Compact Commission.

She said interim study committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, can be viewed live online at iga.in.gov. This site also provides committee calendars and meeting agendas. Members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify.
