Representative Maureen Bauer

Today, I was sworn in to serve as State Representative of Indiana House District 6. It is the greatest honor to serve the residents of my hometown of South Bend.

I will work tirelessly to ensure we address the ongoing threat of COVID-19. That we put health and safety first to protect our healthcare workers and seniors. That we support our educators, schools, and businesses to assist them in operating safely. That we create a healthcare system that is equitable for all.

Together, we will improve the quality of life here at home.

Whereas, the Governor has instituted some new restrictions that are incorporated herein and he has given discretion to local health departments to take other such actions as are necessary to address this pandemic,
