Alting ranked among Indiana’s top leaders in 2019 HPI Power 50 list

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 17, 2019) – Recently, Howey Politics Indiana (HPI) ranked State Sen. Ron Alting (R-Lafayette) among some of Indiana’s most impactful leaders on their 2019 Power 50 list.

Alting received 16th place for his service as chair of the Senate Committee on Public Policy and his commitment over the past 20 years to enact impactful legislation, including establishing voting centers in all 92 counties and repealing the ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales. Because of these efforts, as well as others, he has been named “Legislator of the Year” nine times by a number of organizations.

“You are only as good as the people around you, and I’m grateful to have an excellent group of people working alongside me, both in Lafayette and at the Statehouse,” Alting said. “I am proud to receive this ranking, and I will continue to work hard this session to help improve the state of Indiana.”

The HPI Power 50 list is compiled each year and contains the most influential people in Indiana government. These people are chosen based on their involvement and predicted pivotal decisions that could influence Hoosiers. Other names at the top of this year’s list include Gov. Eric Holcomb, Vice President Mike Pence and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.
