STATEHOUSE — State Representative Sharon Negele (R-Attica) has been appointed to serve on the Governor’s Commission on Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises.
“I am honored to serve as a member of the Governor’s Commission on Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises,” said Rep. Negele. “Participating in this committee will allow me to actively work to cultivate an environment that provides opportunities for minorities and women across the state of Indiana.”
Every year after the legislative session is completed, the Legislative Council meets to assign topics for study during the interim as well as establish any new interim committee that is needed to examine a particular issue. Most interim committees begin meeting in July with their work wrapping up toward the end of October.
Interim committees are an integral part of the legislative process. Even though session is adjourned for 2013, representatives continue their legislative duties by conducting in-depth studies of various topics assigned to their committees. Interim committees with specific expertise receive public testimony and work out the details of proposed legislation before it is introduced in the 2014 session.
“Summer study committees allow legislators the opportunity to discuss critical issues in an effort to better understand and prepare for next session,” said Rep. Negele. “I look forward to the work we will accomplish through these meetings.”
