STATEHOUSE (June 23, 2016) — State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) will be serving as chair of the Interim Study Committee on Government.

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.

“My experience with local and state government will help me lead fellow legislators as we explore ways to continue making our government more efficient,” Mahan said. “As a committee, we will be taking a look at improving transparency at the local level, annexation laws and political subdivision procedures.”

Mahan 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.

Mahan will also serve on the Board of Trustees of the Criminal Justice Institute.
