Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (June 19, 2013) —Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has appointed State Sen. Travis Holdman (R-Markle) to the Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana and the Interim Study Committee on Insurance, which he will chair.

During the 2013 legislative session, Holdman authored several bills that addressed issues related to child welfare. One of his bills – Senate Enrolled Act 125 – established the Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana, which will review services for vulnerable youth and make recommendations for improvement.

“Last summer, the Department of Child Services Interim Study Committee determined that more needed to be done to protect our most vulnerable,” Holdman said. “We’re now hoping to create a long-term commission that will continually assess child services in our state. This will allow any issues to be immediately addressed.”

In addition, Holdman was appointed as Chair of the Interim Study Committee on Insurance, which will review topics related to consumer lawsuit lending, liens on mortgaged property and uninsured motorists.

Each summer and fall — 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 committees are an essential part of Indiana’s legislative process,” Long said. “Many of the issues that lawmakers consider during the summer and fall months are the foundation for legislation that will come before the General Assembly in the upcoming session.”

Study committee topics are assigned by the Legislative Council, comprised of 16 voting members — eight from the House of Representatives and eight from the Senate.
