Melton to serve on elite committee

At the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) 2018 Legislative Summit in Los Angeles, lawmakers from around the country elected State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) to serve on the 2018-2019 NCSL Executive Committee.

“I am proud to be a part of the leadership of a well-respected organization like the National Conference of State Legislatures,” Senator Melton said. “Our country needs to see that elected officials from both parties can work together to solve problems. NCSL is the go-to resource for state legislators from around the country and I’m humbled to give Indiana a voice on this important national committee.”

The NCSL Executive Committee is the governing body of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Comprised of 63 elected members, the Executive Committee drives the organization by supervising and controlling the affairs of the Conference, its committees, and publications, as well as deciding the organization’s ultimate positions on matters of public policy.

“We are pleased to have Senator Melton’s expertise on NCSL’s Executive Committee,” NCSL President and Illinois Senator Toi Hutchinson said. “Sen. Melton’s participation in NCSL over the years has been a key part of the organization’s success.”

The Executive Committee meets four times a year to oversee the development and implementation of NCSL policies.

Senator Melton has been an active member of the National Conference of State Legislatures throughout his tenure as a state legislator and has served on NCSL’s nominating committee.

Senator Melton represents Indiana Senate District 3, which encompasses portions of Lake County. District 3 communities include Gary, Lake Station, New Chicago, Hobart, Ainsworth, Merrillville and Crown Point.
