[s13] Sen. Glick to Chair Child Custody Committee

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2013) — Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has appointed State Sen. Sue Glick (R-LaGrange) as Chair of the Child Custody and Support Advisory Committee for 2013.

Glick has served as a family law attorney for more than 30 years and said her experience in assisting with difficult custody situations made this issue particularly important to her.
 
“As parents restructure their lives after separation, dissolutions or divorce, their children often find themselves in the center of emotional battles over finances and the amount of time each parent shares with the child,” Glick said. “Effective parenting requires more than ‘every other weekend visits,’ just as the financial needs of individual children vary from time to time throughout the year and from one age to another. This committee will review Indiana’s current system to assist the courts in providing options to families for the benefit of Hoosier children.”

In addition, Glick was appointed to serve on the Judicial Technology Oversight Study Committee and Water Resources Study Committee.

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.
