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 Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) was appointed to serve on three committees:
• Family, Children and Human Affairs
• Public Health
• Select Committee on Government Reduction
During the interim, Rep. Bacon was also appointed to the Medicaid Advisory Committee. For further details on this committee, please visit http://bit.ly/1zqrpey.
“As a grandfather, I am particularly humbled to serve on the Family, Children and Human Affairs Committee and be a voice for Indiana’s most vulnerable,” said Rep. Bacon. “Our children are the future leaders of this state, so I look forward to working in these important committees to help shape the conversation and make decisions that ensure safer, stronger communities for Hoosier families.”
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.
