INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 8, 2015) – Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) was presented with the Legislative Excellence Award by the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council (IPAC) at their Winter Conference. The award was presented by Hendricks County Prosecuting Attorney, Patricia Baldwin.
“This is an honor and I am humbled to receive this award,” Steuerwald said. “As chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, I will continue to promote and craft legislation that advances public safety efforts. I look forward to continuing to work closely with IPAC as we get closer to the 2016 legislative session.”
Steuerwald is one of two inaugural recipients of the IPAC Legislative Excellence Award, which is based upon outstanding legislative leadership on the issue of public safety in the State of Indiana and contributions made to support public safety in the Indiana General Assembly.
“Greg Steuerwald has performed herculean work to enhance public safety in Indiana, particularly by providing truth-in-sentencing for victims of violent crime. His exemplary commitment to funding substance abuse and mental health treatment will create new opportunities for recovery and reform. Finally, his selfless approach to improving government serves as a model for all legislators,” said David N. Powell, executive director of IPAC.
