State Sen. Zay gets his study committee spots to prep for 2018 session

State Sen. Andy Zay (R-Huntington) will serve on the following study committees during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2018 session of the General Assembly:

•  Interim Study Committee on Education.

• Study Committee on Financial Institutions and Insurance.

“I’m looking forward to continuing the discussions on important topics facing our state,” Zay said.

“In the upcoming months, the Education study committee will examine topics regarding new professional development programs for educators and various issues relating to the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.

“The Financial Institutions and Insurance study committee will be discussing laws and regulations impacting incorporated entities.”

When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers serve on interim study committees that meet to review the state’s top issues, as identified by the General Assembly during the prior legislative session.

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