Local GOP lawmakers assigned to committee work
Ways and Means has long been recognized as one of, if not the most powerful Indiana House committee, because it deals with purse strings. And incoming House Speaker Brian Bosma has appointed fellow Republican Suzanne Crouch as vice chair of the committee. Crouch will also serve on the Select Committee on Government Reduction, and the Public Health Committee. Freshman Representative Ron Bacon was also appointed to Public Health, along with Natural Resources, and the Agriculture and Rural Development Committee. Freshman Rep Wendy McNamara will serve on Courts and Criminal Code, Government and Regulatory Reform, and Roads and Transportation Committees. Bosma will release Democrat committee appointments next week.
