STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2016) – State Rep. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) has been appointed to serve on the House Committee on Insurance, the House Committee on Public Policy and the House Committee on Ways and Means.

She was also reappointed as Assistant Majority Floor Leader.

“Every two years, lawmakers must craft a state budget,” Mayfield said. “As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, I can play an enhanced role in making sure Hoosier tax dollars are invested wisely. Indiana needs to continue living within its means while funding vital services like education and public safety.”

Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election. On Jan. 4, House lawmakers will convene at 1:30 p.m. in the House Chamber for the first day of the 2017 legislative session.
