STATEHOUSE- House Republican Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) has announced committee appointments for the Indiana House Republican caucus. Committee chairmen and caucus leaders are selected biennially by the majority party after each election year.
In 2011, Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) will serve on the Elections & Apportionment, Financial Institutions and Utilities & Energy Committees. Last week, he was appointed Chairman of the Education Committee.
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'm looking forward to the coming session," said Rep. Behning. "I believe in working together, and I hope my colleagues are willing to do the same."
