The Republican State Representative in District 20, Tom Dermody, has been appointed as leadership in the Ways and Means Committee.
Dermody believes Indiana is in great financial shape as debts have been paid down and the reserve has grown. He says being fiscally responsible is a commitment that the Committee will live by to ensure that wasteful spending is eliminated and a balanced budget is preserved.
For the past two years, Dermody has been the chairman of the Ways and Means Higher Education Committee. Republican Representative Tim Brown of Crawfordsville will serve as the new chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
