STATEHOUSE (June 25, 2019) ― House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) released the 2019 interim study committee appointments today for members of the Indiana House of Representatives.

Indiana’s part-time legislature works on policy issues throughout the summer and fall months while lawmakers are not in session. Members are selected to serve on interim committees, which thoroughly vet the state’s top issues, gather public testimony and recommend potential legislation.

“Summer study committees give lawmakers a chance to review and vet ideas for new laws, and make sound policy recommendations for next session,” Bosma said. “Many important topics are on our plate this summer ranging from a deep dive into how to improve career counseling in our schools to rising healthcare and prescription drug costs. I look forward to our committee members getting to work and identifying ways we can make our great state even better.”

Many interim committees will begin meeting in July with a majority of their work concluded by the end of October. The list of assignments for the 2019 legislative interim study committees, and other legislative appointments is available here
