STATEHOUSE (July 6, 2017) – State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) was recently named to four summer study committees that will examine assigned topics, gather testimonies and recommend potential legislation.

Eberhart will serve on the Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy, the Interim Study Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources, the Indiana White River State Park Development Commission and the Military Base Planning Council.

“As a member of the new Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy, we will be examining Indiana’s gun laws,” Eberhart said. “During the legislative session I sit on the public policy committee and chair the committee on natural resources, so I will use my experience to help keep Hoosiers safe and preserve our state’s natural resources.”

Eberhart 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 welcome to attend and testify.
