Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS –State Senator Richard D. Young Jr. (D-Milltown) has been appointed to serve as a member on the Midwestern Legislative Conference (MLC) Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee for the 2013-2014 biennium. The conference is a regional association of legislators representing 11 Midwestern states and four Canadian provinces.

“There are many agricultural issues that affect the economy and well-being not only for Hoosiers, but the citizens of the nation as a whole,” said Young. “I look forward to working with legislators and legislative staff from around the Midwest to begin sharing new ideas and policies that can more effectively address those issues facing our constituents.”

The purpose of the MLC is to foster cooperation among the region's policymakers through the consideration of common problems, the exchange of information and ideas, the sharing of knowledge and the pursuit of collaborative efforts to improve state government.

The Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee represents state government on key regional and national issues, promotes the importance of agriculture to the U.S. economy and society, and guides MLC projects related to agriculture and other policy issues impacting the rural Midwest.

The Council of State Governments (CSG) is the nation's only nonpartisan association of state officials serving all three branches of government in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. CSG is a regionally-based, national organization that promotes excellence in state government. CSG fosters the interstate exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy, and it offers unparalleled regional, national and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships.

Sen. Young represents Senate District 47 which encompasses portions of Crawford, Dubois, Harrison, Orange, Perry and Washington counties. For more information on Sen. Young, his legislative agenda or other State Senate business, call 1-800-382-9467 or visit www.IN.gov/s47.
