STATEHOUSE (June 23, 2016) — State Rep. Mike Braun (R-Jasper) will serve on the Interim Study Committee on Education.

In preparation for the 2017 legislative session, which begins in January, interim study committee members meet to examine assigned topics, gather testimonies and identify potential legislation.

“The safety of our children remains a top priority for the General Assembly,” Braun said. “To ensure Hoosier schools continue to provide a safe environment for their students, our summer study committee is tasked with finding ways to improve the reporting requirements for sexual misconduct violations.”

Braun 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 also welcome to attend.

Braun will also serve on the Military Base Planning Council.
