STATEHOUSE — House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) announced standing committee assignments for the 119th General Assembly. Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election.
State Representative Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) has been reappointed to serve as Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee. He will also serve on the Environmental Affairs Committee and the Public Policy Committee.
“Having previously served on each of these committees, I look forward to using my expertise in these areas while also continuing to learn more about the issues that matter most to Hoosiers,” said Rep. Eberhart. “It is an honor to serve our community and state in these roles.”
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 they are all eager to begin their work,” said Speaker Bosma.
The 2015 legislative session begins on Tuesday, Jan. 6, at 1:30pm.
