From Local Sources

INDIANAPOLIS — State Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper, has been selected to participate on a subcommittee of the Council of State Governments’ national Future of Work Task Force.

Messmer will serve as a member of the Workforce of Tomorrow Subcommittee, which will explore policy options to ensure state workforces can accommodate the shifting needs of employers and employees alike in the face of technological disruptions from automation, robotics, artificial intelligence and the expansion of the “gig economy.”

The work of the task force will take place across a two-year timeline with key findings and recommendations studied and shared during task force meetings, some of which will be held at the annual CSG National Conferences.
