Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (June 20, 2013) — Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has appointed State Sen. Jim Buck (R-Kokomo) as a co-chairman of the Interim Study Committee on Economic Development for 2013.

“This past year, Indiana added the ninth-most private sector jobs in the nation, and we have developed an employer-friendly tax climate to encourage job growth,” Buck said. “To further strengthen our state’s economic growth, our committee will specifically look into ways to help develop the rural areas of our state.”

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.”

In addition, Buck was appointed to serve on the following committees:
  • Commission on Education
  • Environmental Quality Service Council
  • State Workforce Innovation Council

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.
