Sen. Becker Receives Study Committee Assignments



State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville) will serve on the following study committees, commissions and councils during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2016 session of the General Assembly:


  • Interim Study Committee on Public Health, Behavioral Health, and Human Services
  • Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation
  • Indiana Commission for Women
  • Commission on Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises
  • Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities Interagency Coordinating Council


“Study committees are an important part of Indiana’s legislative process because they allow lawmakers to hear input from the public,” Becker said. “My colleagues and I are able to get a balanced and in-depth perspective on proposals that will come before the General Assembly in the upcoming session.”


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.
