Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) has released the 2019 interim study committee appointments for members of the Indiana House of Representatives.
Indiana’s part-time legislature works on policy issues throughout the summer and fall months while lawmakers are not in session.
Members discuss the state’s top issues, gather public testimony and recommend legislative action.
“Summer study committees give lawmakers a chance to review and vet ideas for new laws, and make sound policy recommendations for next session,” Bosma said in a news release. “Many important topics are on our plate this summer ranging from a deep dive into how to improve career counseling in our schools to rising healthcare and prescription drug costs. I look forward to our committee members getting to work and identifying ways we can make our great state even better.”
Many interim committees will start in July and run through October.
