STATEHOUSE (July 6, 2017) – State Rep. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) was recently named to one summer study committee and two year-round commissions. Study committees will examine assigned topics, gather testimonies and recommend potential legislation.

Mayfield is assigned to the Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy, the Indiana Commission for Women and the Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs.

“Over the course of the next few months, legislators will be taking a closer look at Indiana’s firearms statutes,” Mayfield said. “As a legislator and gun owner, I am looking forward to these discussions on the new Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy. In addition, being part of both the Commission for Women and Commission for Hispanic and Latino Affairs, I am encouraged to find ways we can better support these two communities and bring to light all the wonderful things they do for Indiana.”

Mayfield 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.
