STATEHOUSE — House Republican Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) has announced committee members for the Indiana House Republican caucus. Rep. Lloyd Arnold (R-Leavenworth) has been selected to serve as Vice Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee.
Committee chairmen and caucus leaders are selected biennially by the majority party after each election year.
