[s50] Sen. Vaneta Becker Receives Study Committee Assignments
Start Date: 6/24/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 6/24/2013
Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (June 24, 2013) —Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) has appointed State Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville) to serve on the Health Finance Commission and Joint Study Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Assessment and Solutions for 2013.

“Both of these committees have vital issues to consider, from making sure our roads are fully funded to addressing Indiana’s role in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,” Becker said. “The primary purpose of these study committees is to give lawmakers more time to hear from experts, seek input from the public and ultimately find the best solutions for Hoosiers.”

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.”

Becker was also appointed to serve on the following committees:
•    Indiana Commission for Women
•    Council on Evansville State Hospitals
•    Commission on Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises

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.
