State Sen. Mike Gaskill to serve on study committees

STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2021) — State Sen. Mike Gaskill (R-Pendleton) will serve as a member of several study committees in preparation for the 2022 legislative session.

Gaskill's assignments include the following:

  • Interim Study Committee on Courts and the Judiciary;
  • Interim Study Committee on Education;
  • Interim Study Committee on Financial Institutions and Insurance;
  • Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation; and
  • Code Revision Commission.

"These study committees afford lawmakers the time needed to effectively evaluate the state's most pressing issues," Gaskill said. "This is one aspect of the legislative process that I enjoy most. I encourage residents of Senate District 26 to engage with the process, as it strengthens and improves our ability to find lasting solutions that work best for you."

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.
