STATEHOUSE (Dec. 21, 2020) – State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) was recently named to the House Commerce, Small Business and Economic Development Committee.

This comes after he was recently appointed as the new chair of the House Roads and Transportation Committee.

"As a small-business owner, I understand the challenges faced by our businesses," Pressel said. "Indiana's economy has been so strong, and even in the face of a pandemic, we are weathering the storm. I am going to continue supporting policies that help our communities thrive, and the success of local job providers is a key component of our vitality."

Pressel was re-elected in November to represent House District 20 in the Indiana General Assembly. He said House standing committees will meet throughout the legislative session, kicking off Jan. 4, to consider legislation impacting Hoosiers.
