State Sen. Jeff Raatz to vice chair education study committee

STATEHOUSE (June 28, 2024) — State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond) will serve as vice chair of the Interim Study Committee on Education and as a member of several other study committees in preparation for the 2025 legislative session.

Raatz's other assignments include:

"The summer months are the perfect time to take an in-depth look at issues surrounding education without the time constraints of a legislative session," Raatz said. "Each year I have many conversations with my colleagues, stakeholders and constituents about possible policy changes, and these study committees are one more way we as lawmakers can help ensure we are fully informed on the issues as we head into the legislative session."

Legislators will meet over the summer and fall months to discuss topics approved by the bipartisan Legislative Council, which is comprised of 16 voting members – eight from the Senate and eight from the House of Representatives.
