STATEHOUSE (June 23, 2015) — State Sen. Pete Miller (R-Brownsburg) will serve on three interim study committees during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2016 session of the General Assembly:
- Interim Study Committee on Education
- Interim Study Committee on Fiscal Policy
- Interim Study Committee on Corrections and Criminal Code
“During interim study committee hearings, we meet with members of the public, gather input from experts and debate policies,” Miller said. “These meetings serve as the foundation for new laws and foster collaboration among lawmakers working on behalf of the people they represent.”
When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers are assigned to interim study committees that meet to review the state’s top issues, as identified by the General Assembly during the prior legislative session.
Study committee topics are assigned by the bipartisan Legislative Council, comprised of 16 voting members — eight from the House of Representatives and eight from the Senate.
