Legislative Council announces 2019 interim study committee topics

STATEHOUSE (May 21, 2019) ― The Indiana General Assembly’s Legislative Council met today to assign topics for lawmakers to study during the 2019 legislative interim.

The Legislative Council is comprised of eight members of the Indiana Senate and eight members of the Indiana House of Representatives. This year, Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) is serving as chair and House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) is serving as vice-chair.

“Study committees provide an important opportunity for lawmakers to examine complicated issues in depth without the same time restrictions we face during a legislative session,” Bray said. “As such, they serve an important role in helping us prepare for the next session. We have collaborated to identify a number of important topics for study, and I look forward to productive conversations between lawmakers, Hoosiers and stakeholders as we take a hard look at these issues in the coming months.”

House and Senate leaders will assign members to each study committee in the coming weeks. Committees will meet during the summer and fall months in preparation for the 2020 session of the General Assembly.
