State Rep. Woody Burton was recently reappointed to serve as chair of the House Committee on Financial Institutions.
He was also named to the House Committee on Education, the House Committee on Judiciary and the House Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedures.
“As a vital part of the legislative process, committee hearings allow legislators to receive direct testimony from experts and members of the public,” Burton said. “My experience working with various financial institutions through my realtor business gives me a unique perspective when hearing policies in my committee. I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues as we consider legislation that will continue to move Indiana forward.”
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.
