State Sen. Michael Crider to Serve as Chair of Roads and Transportation Study Committee

STATEHOUSE (June 28, 2017) — State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) will serve as the Chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2018 session of the General Assembly. He will also serve on the following study committee, council, commission and foundation:

  • Interim Study Committee on Government
  • Counterterrorism and Security Council
  • Integrated Public Safety Commission
  • Indiana Homeland Security Foundation

“Interim study committees give lawmakers the opportunity to examine issues impacting the state of Indiana,” Crider said. “The Roads and Transportation Study Committee will take a look at several issues including motor vehicle inspection programs in Northern Indiana, the feasibility of a traffic amnesty program and the suitability of specialty license plates.”

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.
