STATEHOUSE (Oct. 4, 2019) – State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) was recently selected to serve as chair of the House Government and Regulatory Reform Committee.

Pressel was vice chair of the committee during the 2019 legislative session, and has served as a member of the committee since first taking office in 2017.

“I learned a lot during my tenure as vice chair of this committee, and I am eager to take on this leadership position,” Pressel said. “Indiana has set itself apart as the top state in the nation for commonsense regulatory reform, and I hope to maintain that momentum by continuing to cut unnecessary red tape and making our state government more efficient.”

Pressel will continue serving on the House Elections and Apportionment Committee, the House Roads and Transportation Committee, and the House Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee.
