STATEHOUSE – State Sen. Mark Messmer (R-Jasper) has been appointed by Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) to chair the Senate Committees on Environmental Affairs and Joint Rules for the 121st Indiana General Assembly.
“Committees give legislators the opportunity to hold thorough discussions and listen to detailed testimony from experts on important issues,” Messmer said. “I’m looking forward to serving as chair of the Senate Committees on Environmental Affairs and studying proposed legislation to determine if it would positively impact our state.”
Messmer will also serve as ranking member of the Senate Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedure and as a member of the Senate Committees on Public Policy and Tax and Fiscal Policy. In addition, Messmer has been named to the Senate Republican leadership team as Majority Floor Leader.
