Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2013) — Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has appointed State Sen. Doug Eckerty (R-Yorktown) as Chair of the Unemployment Insurance Oversight Committee.

“With many Hoosiers still looking for work, it’s more important now than ever before to ensure that unemployment insurance benefits are being administered in a proper manner,” Eckerty said. “The committee will review these methods and procedures to determine whether there is a need for improvement in the overall system. This study is essential to supporting our struggling families.”

In addition, Eckerty was appointed to serve on the following summer study committees: 

Community and Home Options to Institutional Care for Elderly and Disabled Board 
Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations 
Indiana Recycling Market Development Board 

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.
