STATEHOUSE (June 24, 2016) — State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) will be serving on the Interim Study Committee on Public Policy.

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.

“As a small-business owner, I will bring valuable experience to the Interim Study Committee on Public Policy,” Lucas said. “We will be examining the complex alcohol distribution system in Indiana, and how fantasy sports should be appropriately governed.”

Lucas said interim study committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, can be viewed live at iga.in.gov. This site also provides committee calendars and meeting agendas. Members of the public are also welcomed to attend.

Lucas will also serve on the Military Base Planning Council.
