STATEHOUSE (June 23, 2016) — State Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso) will be serving as chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation and as a member of the Funding Indiana’s Roads for a Stronger Safer Tomorrow (FIRSST) task force.           

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 chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation, I will continue to lead fellow members in discussions regarding specialty license plates and equipping school buses with seat belts.” Soliday said. “The FIRSST task force will work to identify long-term, sustainable and responsible road funding solutions in order to submit a recommendation to the General Assembly by January.”

Soliday 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.
