Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Nov. 15, 2012) — Indiana Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) today appointed State Sen. Carlin Yoder (R-Middlebury) as chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources for the 118th General Assembly. The 2013 legislative session will be Yoder’s first time to lead this panel.

“I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve my constituents and all Hoosiers in a new way as the leader of this committee,” Yoder said. “Coming from an agricultural community, and also previously serving on this committee, I understand how important farming and our vast natural resources are to the state economically.”

Yoder said his committee will consider legislation dealing with Indiana’s livestock and farming operations as well as wildlife, mining and conservation. Long said he’s confident Yoder’s experience makes him the perfect fit as chairman.

“Senator Yoder brings a unique professional and personal experience to the Senate that qualifies him to lead his colleagues in related policy discussions,” Long said. “Our state legislature is very fortunate to have the opportunity to tap into his expertise, using it to make Indiana a better place to live, work and raise a family.”

The 2013 legislative session ceremonially kicks off with “Organization Day” on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Legislators will reconvene Jan. 7 and may work until April 29 to draft a two-year state budget and other new laws.
