STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2018) — State Rep. David Abbott (R-Rome City) was recently selected to serve on the Interim Study Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs, which will examine several topics and gather testimonies for potential legislation.

“This summer we will discuss a number of important topics including professional licenses for transitioning military members and their spouses, and other public safety matters,” Abbott said. “As a new legislator, I look forward to learning more about the issues impacting our service members and how the state can help.”

Abbott said interim study committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, can be viewed live online at iga.in.gov. This site also provides committee calendars and meeting agendas. Members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify.
