State Rep. Jim Pressel, R-Rolling Prairie, was recently selected to serve as vice chair of the House Government and Regulatory Reform Committee.

Pressel was also reappointed to the House Elections and Apportionment Committee, and newly appointed to the House Roads and Transportation Committee and the House Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee.

“Committee meetings are a great opportunity for Hoosiers to share insight with state legislators on how laws might impact Indiana,” Pressel said. “With many important issues coming up this session, input from the public will be especially important as lawmakers work together on legislation. I encourage members of the community to stay engaged throughout the process.”

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