(Statehouse) Aug. 22, 2008 - Republican Leader Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) announced today his appointment of state Rep. Randy L. Borror (R-Ft. Wayne) to serve as the House Republican alternate on the State Budget Committee. Rep. Borror replaces state Rep. Larry L. Buell (R-Indianapolis), who is retiring from the Indiana General Assembly.

|End Date: ||8/22/2008|
Rep. Borror has served in the Indiana General Assembly since 2001 and is currently a member of the Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedures, the Small Business and Economic Development Committee, and the Ways and Means Committee.
"Representative Borror has a strong background in all of the critical matters that come before the State Budget Committee," Rep. Bosma said. "His legislative and business background will be an asset to the committee."
"It's a great honor to be appointed to this most important committee by Leader Bosma and an honor to follow in the footsteps of Rep. Larry Buell," Rep. Borror said. "I look forward to working with the State Budget Committee at this critical time in Indiana's history, and I am anxious to get to work."
The Budget Committee is composed of four legislators - one Democrat and one Republican from both the House of Representatives and the Senate - and the director of the Budget Agency. Four members from each caucus also serve as an alternate member. State Rep. Jeff Espich (R-Uniondale) currently serves as chairman of the State Budget Committee, which is scheduled to hold its next hearings on Aug. 28 and 29.
"I am pleased with the appointment of Rep. Borror," said Rep. Espich. "He has demonstrated leadership while serving in the General Assembly, and he will be a strong voice for the citizens of Indiana."
The Budget Committee holds public hearings with state agencies to outline their budget requests. After the hearings are completed and future revenue estimates are presented through the Revenue Forecast, the committee makes a single, comprehensive budget recommendation to the governor.
