STATEHOUSE (July 21, 2021) – State Rep. Tom Saunders (R-Lewisville) recently received an appointment to serve as a member of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation.

Throughout the summer and fall, Indiana state legislators serve on interim study committees where they work on policy, examine top issues, gather testimony and recommend legislation ahead of the legislative session kicking off in January.

"Indiana continues to be in a strong financial position to invest in local infrastructure projects," Saunders said. "This summer we will look at the results and how to build on our Community Crossings Grant Program, which helps Hoosier communities like ours fund much-needed road and bridge projects."

Saunders will also serve on the Lewis and Clark Expedition Commission.

According to Saunders, members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify at committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. Hearings are also livestreamed and archived online at iga.in.gov, where committee calendars and meeting agendas are posted.
