Bosma releases summer study committee appointments –
(from June 25, 2019 Press release)
House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) released the 2019 interim study committee appointments today for members of the Indiana House of Representatives.
Indiana’s part-time legislature works on policy issues throughout the summer and fall months while lawmakers are not in session. Members are selected to serve on interim committees, which thoroughly vet the state’s top issues, gather public testimony and recommend potential legislation.
“Summer study committees give lawmakers a chance to review and vet ideas for new laws, and make sound policy recommendations for next session,” Bosma said. “Many important topics are on our plate this summer ranging from a deep dive into how to improve career counseling in our schools to rising healthcare and prescription drug costs. I look forward to our committee members getting to work and identifying ways we can make our great state even better.”
Many interim committees will begin meeting in July with a majority of their work concluded by the end of October. The list of assignments for the 2019 legislative interim study committees, and other legislative appointments is available here.
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.

 Honoring the legacy of women’s suffrage in Evansville –
(from June 28, 2019 News Update)
Recently, Gov. Eric Holcomb ceremonially signed into law legislation I co-authored commemorating 100 years of women’s right to vote. The new lawcreates the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission that will organize and promote activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which was adopted in August 1920. I am honored to recognize the sacrifices made to secure this invaluable right.

Women here in Evansville played an important role in campaigning for the right to vote when members of the Evansville Franchise League mobilized and encouraged women to peacefully protest for the right to cast a ballot in an election.

To learn more about the history of women’s suffrage in Evansville and Indiana, click here.

On Saturday July 13, 2019, Governor Eric Holcomb will bring together Hoosiers for a big event and a major announcement in the iconic Hoosier Gym in Knightstown.

 Circle this date on your calendar and hold it to join in the celebration of Indiana and our state’s incredible momentum.
