(Indianapolis, Ind.) – He has not had the opportunity to cast his first vote yet, but Jud McMillin has been appointed to three committees for his first term at the Indiana Statehouse.
|Rep. Jud McMillin|
McMillin won House District 68 Representative in the Nov. 2 election defeating three-decade incumbent Bob Bischoff.
On Wednesday, Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) announced committee assignments.
McMillin (R-Brookville) will be Vice Chair on the House Judiciary Committee. He’ll also serve on the Court and Criminal Code Committee and Roads and Transportation Committee.
“As a newly elected official, I am honored to be a part of these committees and to have the opportunity to serve as the Vice Chair on the Judiciary committee,” said Rep. McMillin. “I’m anxious to get started with committee work and to start serving my district. There is a lot of work to be done, and committees are where the lion's share of that work will happen.”
District 55 Rep. Tom Knollman (R-Liberty) has been appointed as Chairman of the House Interstate and International Cooperation Committee. He will also sit on the Public Policy Committee and the Agriculture and Rural Development Committee.
"It's a true honor to be selected to serve as the Chairman of this particular committee," said Rep. Knollman, "and I appreciate the Speaker and our leadership for my appointment.
"I am eager to get to work in getting this committee where it should have been years ago. Since its creation, it's become a scapegoat for controversial bills that can't get hearing in any other committee; when it should be serving as a committee that hears legislation concerning interstate affairs."
District 55 includes portions of Fayette, Union, Dearborn, Franklin and Wayne counties.
