INDIANAPOLIS | A Northwest Indiana state senator has been chosen by the National Conference of State Legislatures to lead its work on state-level employment and business issues.
As co-chairman of NCSL's Labor and Economic Development Committee, state Sen. Brandt Hershman, R-Wheatfield, will meet with members of Congress to discuss jobs and other related topics.
The three-term Hoosier senator said he plans to also share what has worked in Indiana with legislators from other states.
Hershman is chairman of the Indiana Senate's Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee. Earlier this year, he voted in favor of the state's controversial right-to-work labor law.
