STATEHOUSE (Dec. 10, 2018) — State Rep. Denny Zent (R-Angola) was recently reappointed to chair of the House Local Government Committee.

“Government begins at the local level where citizens have a direct say over their communities,” Zent said. “It is crucial to protect and preserve local control while providing assistance and guidance where necessary. As an engaged citizen, a health care provider and a veteran, I will use my experience to lead the House Local Government Committee and guide sound legislation through the process.”

Zent was also reappointed to serve on the House Public Health Committee and the House Veterans Affairs and Public Safety Committee.

Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election. On Jan. 3, House lawmakers will convene at 1:30 p.m. in the House Chamber for the first day of the 2019 legislative session.
