STATEHOUSE (Dec. 19, 2016) – State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) has been appointed to serve on the House Committee on Commerce, Small Business and Economic Development.

He was also named to the House Committee on Elections and Apportionment and the House Committee on Government and Regulatory Reform.

“I am looking forward to working with fellow lawmakers to tackle diverse issues facing our state,” Pressel said. “As a small-business owner, I will apply my experience as we vet legislation brought before these committees. My top priority is to continue attracting employers to Indiana and fostering our economy with less regulation.”

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.
