STATEHOUSE — House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) announced committee assignments and leadership appointments for the Indiana House Republican Caucus. Committee chairmen and caucus leaders are selected biennially by the majority party after each election year.

Rep. Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) has been selected to serve as Chair of the Family, Children and Human Affairs committee.

“As a legislator and a mother, the safety and well-being of children and families has always been a top priority of mine,” said Rep. Kubacki. “By serving as chair of the Family, Children and Human Affairs committee I am pleased to be able to continue my mission to be a voice for children and families of Indiana. The issues that are addressed by this committee are steps in the right direction as we examine ways to strengthen family bonds and the safety of Hoosiers.”

In addition to her chairmanship appointment, Rep. Kubacki will also serve on the following committees:

• Courts and Criminal Code
• Employment, Labor and Pensions
• Interstate and International Cooperation

Standing committees are an integral part of the legislative process.  Committees with specific expertise receive public testimony and work out the details of proposed legislation before it is heard on the House floor.

“I am confident in the abilities of each of these leaders, and I know that they are each eager to begin their committee work and their leadership roles,” said Speaker Bosma.  


Rep. Kubacki (R-Syracuse) represents portions of Elkhart and Kosciusko counties.
