State Sen. Liz Brown to Serve on Study Committees

STATEHOUSE (June 28, 2017) — State Sen. Liz Brown (R-Fort Wayne) will serve on the following study committees, commissions and boards during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2018 session of the General Assembly:

  • Interim Study Committee on Fiscal Policy
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission
  • Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Board

“I’m looking forward to serving on the Fiscal Policy Study Committee to continue Indiana’s strong financial position,” Brown said. “This year, the committee will hear testimony and discuss numerous topics to support Hoosier employers and protect how taxpayer dollars are spent. This includes eliminating retail taxes on food sold in vending machines, examining public school districts’ financial condition, and continuing our comprehensive review of all tax incentives the state utilizes to attract new employers.”

When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers serve on interim study committees that meet to review the state’s top issues, as identified by the General Assembly during the prior legislative session.

Study committee topics are assigned by the bipartisan Legislative Council, comprised of 16 voting members — eight from the Senate and eight from the House of Representatives.
