STATEHOUSE (June 19, 2019) — Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) today announced interim study committee assignments for members of the Indiana Senate.
Interim study committees are comprised of members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and meet over the summer and fall months when the Indiana General Assembly is not in session in order to help lawmakers prepare for the upcoming session.
Members of the Senate will chair the 2019 interim study committees, with members of the House of Representatives serving as vice chairs.
“Interim study committees are a critical part of the legislative process, as they allow lawmakers to take a deep dive into important issues affecting the Hoosier state without the time constraints of the legislative session,” Bray said. “Some of the larger topics we are studying this year include the formula used to provide additional funding to schools who educate a larger number of students in poverty, prescription drug pricing, rising healthcare costs, and the taxation of CBD and vaping products. I believe we will have a productive interim that will lead to positive changes for Hoosiers in the 2020 legislative session.”
Topics for study are assigned by the Legislative Council, which is comprised of eight members of the Indiana Senate and eight members of the Indiana House of Representatives.
