STATEHOUSE (July 7, 2017) — State Rep. Steve Davisson (R-Salem) was recently named to two summer study committees, which examine assigned topics, gather testimonies and recommend potential legislation.

Davisson is assigned to the Interim Study Committee on Public Health, Behavioral Health and Human Services and the Military Base Planning Council.

“Over the next few months, the interim public health committee will have the chance to study topics that will most likely come up during the next legislative session,” Davisson said. “This summer, we will be looking at the shortage of healthcare providers, the plan to reduce diabetes in Indiana and how to respond to possible changes in federal healthcare law. Before we put forth legislation to be considered, it’s important that we try to work out as many details as possible, and that’s exactly what we will be doing during these committee meetings.”

Davisson 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.
