State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) will serve as chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation during the summer and fall to help prepare lawmakers for the 2020 legislative session. He will also serve on the following committees and councils:
- Interim Study Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources;
- Governor’s Security Council;
- Indiana Homeland Security Foundations; and
- Integrated Public Safety Commission.
“I look forward to serving as chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation,” Crider said. “Through this interim study committee, lawmakers and stakeholders will have the opportunity to collaborate and address some of the most pressing issues facing safety in work zones across the state.”
When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers serve on 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 Senate and eight from the House of Representatives.
