Posted by: Jessica Baker  | Thursday, June 23, 2016

State Rep. Christopher Judy (R-Fort Wayne) will be serving on the Interim Study Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs.

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.

“This past session we worked to expand eligibility to the Military Family Relief Fund so more military families can access temporary financial assistance to pay for essentials like food, housing and medical services,” Judy said. “During the upcoming summer and fall months, this committee will look into how the Military Family Relief Fund will be dispersed to those veterans in need, ultimately deciding the best course of action to guarantee the resources are reaching those who need it most.”

Judy 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 welcomed to attend.
