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

“The goal of this committee is to develop policies that will promote economic growth for our state,” Buck said. “Being the chair of this committee is a great opportunity to serve the people of Indiana and build on the progress we have already made.”

Buck said his committee will consider legislation that encourages an employer-friendly climate and job creation. Long said he’s confident Buck’s experience makes him the perfect fit as chairman.

“Senator Buck 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.
