STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2018) — State Rep. Douglas Gutwein (R-Francesville) was recently selected to serve on the Interim Study Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs.

Gutwein said in the coming months, the committee will examine several topics including professional licensing for transitioning military persons and their spouses, the construction of an injured public safety officer monument, and the feasibility of an electronic system for criminal case information.

“Summer study committees allow us to dive deeper into issues that require more research,” Gutwein said. “By gathering public testimony and reviewing what other states are doing, we can offer recommendations for new laws.”
