INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Sen. Joe Zakas, R-Granger, will head the newly created Senate Committee on Civil Law in the 118th General Assembly.

“This area is an important one for Hoosier communities, families and businesses,” Zakas said in a press release. “The committee will consider legislation on real property, domestic, tort and probate law, along with other issues.”

Indiana Senate President Pro Tempore David Long, R-Fort Wayne, who announced the news in a press release late last week, cited Zakas’ experience as a lawyer and service on the former Committee on Corrections, Criminal and Civil Matters.
