Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Nov. 16, 2012) — Indiana Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) Thursday appointed State Sen. Mike Young (R-Indianapolis) as chairman of the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law for the 118th General Assembly. The 2013 legislative session will be Young’s first time to lead this panel.

“I am honored to serve on this committee where we will examine policies affecting Indiana’s criminal justice system,” Young said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to address the wide range of proposals I expect to come before the committee.”

Young added his committee may review legislation regarding inmates’ good time credits and criminal sentencing reform this year.

Long said he’s confident Young’s experience as an attorney and previous ranking member of the committee makes him the perfect fit as chairman.

“Senator Young 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 begins 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.
