STATEHOUSE (Nov. 20, 2018) – State Rep. Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) joined fellow legislators at the Statehouse today for the Indiana General Assembly’s Organization Day.

Organization Day marks the ceremonial start to the 2019 legislative session. It occurs annually in November, providing state lawmakers time to gather together, meet new members and prepare for the upcoming legislative session. Following the general election this month, all re-elected members and member-elects were sworn into office.

“It’s always great to see fellow lawmakers return to the Statehouse for Organization Day,” Jordan said. “After spending the summer and fall back home in the community, I’m eager to get back to work with my colleagues to keep Indiana on the right track.”

Members of the House of Representatives are partnering with the Indiana Division of The Salvation Army to increase awareness about childhood hunger. Advocacy groups report nearly half of all food-insecure households in Indiana have children living there, and 33 percent of those being served at Hoosier food banks are under the age of 18. House legislators are collecting non-perishable food items for school children who face a period of hunger between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday.

The 2019 legislative session begins Jan. 3 and by law must conclude by April 29.

Jordan said constituents who want to stay informed about his work at the Statehouse and the General Assembly can sign up to receive legislative email updates at www.in.gov/h17.
