SENATE RESOLUTION


     MADAM PRESIDENT:

    I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

    A SENATE RESOLUTION to recognize Senator Greg Server for over thirty years of distinguished service to the Indiana General Assembly and to honor him on his retirement from the Indiana Senate.

    Whereas, after earning a Bachelors degree from the University of Evansville, Server went on to earn a Masters degree in Political Science and a Masters degree in Counseling. A veteran of the United States Navy, Server is a life long member of the VFW;

    Whereas, Greg Server was first elected to the Indiana General Assembly in 1972, serving in the House of Representatives from 1972-1981. In 1981, Server was elected to the Senate to represent District 50, including Vanderburgh and Warrick counties, and has served since that time with distinction;

    Whereas, Senator Server has made many valuable contributions to the Indiana Senate by serving on numerous standing committees, including Appropriations; Health and Provider Services; Homeland Security, Utilities, and Public Policy; and Commerce and Transportation, where he held the

position of Chairman. He also served as Chairman of the Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee;

    Whereas, during his tenure in the Indiana General Assembly, Senator Server authored legislation that led to the independence of the University of Southern Indiana. He also authored legislation that created the Hoosier Heritage Trust Fund and the Hoosier Environmental License Plate. In addition to his legislative career, Senator Server was a teacher and guidance counselor in the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation for 31 years. He also served as Director of administration for the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility; and

    Whereas, in 2005, Senator Server was appointed by Governor Mitch Daniels to the position of Commissioner for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. While he will be greatly missed in the legislature, the Indiana Senate wishes him much success in his new endeavor as a public servant: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana Senate hereby congratulates Senator Greg Server on his retirement from the Senate after 33 years of service to the Indiana General Assembly.
    SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to Commissioner Greg Server and his family.
