Eberhart reappointed to house committee

INDIANAPOLIS — State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) was recently reappointed to serve as chair of the House Committee on Natural Resources.

He was also named to the House Committee on Environmental Affairs and the House Committee on Public Policy.

“Committee meetings are used to gather input from the public and review legislative proposals,” Eberhart said. “Conserving Indiana’s bountiful natural resources is my goal in leading this committee. I look forward to working with fellow lawmakers in keeping Hoosiers, wildlife and our state’s resources both safe and accessible for generations to come.”

Standing committee assignments are made biennially after each election. On Jan. 4, House lawmakers will convene in the House Chamber for the first day of the 2017 legislative session.
