Ruckelshaus Calls for White River Caucus

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 19, 2018) — State Sen. John Ruckelshaus (R-Indianapolis) recently sent a letter to several state senators and representatives urging them to form a White River Caucus.

The caucus would explore ways to enhance the value of the White River, which flows through central and southern Indiana. Ruckelshaus wants the caucus to meet with various stakeholders and experts to explore the possible economic development, connectivity opportunities and potential environmental impact.

“The White River is one of Indiana’s most under-utilized assets,” Ruckelshaus said. “I’m calling on my fellow lawmakers to be bold and join me in shaping the future of the White River and turning it into one of Indiana’s greatest resources.”
