STATEHOUSE- House Republican Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) announced committee members for the Indiana House Republican caucus today. Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) was appointed as a member of the following committee:

-Natural Resources

- Rules and Legislative Procedures

-Ways and Means

"The committee process plays monumental role in our legislature because it provides the opportunity for Hoosiers to present testimony on issues of importance to them," said Rep. Cherry. "I have enjoyed working on Ways and Means throughout the years and I am pleased that I will be able to continue that work this session, especially since I will be working on the budget sub-committee.

"I am also looking forward to continuing as a member of the Rules and Legislative Procedure Committee and Natural Resources Committee.  These are unprecedented times and I am looking forward to getting our work started in January." 

Committee chairmen and caucus leaders are selected biennially by the majority party after each election year.

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.
