Messmer to serve on IDEM panelJune 20, 2019
From Local Sources
INDIANAPOLIS — State Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper, will serve as chair of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Compliance Advisory Panel during the summer and fall to help prepare lawmakers for the 2020 legislative session. He will also serve on the following study groups: Environmental Adjudication Director Selection Panel; Interim Study Committee on Environmental Affairs; and Legislative Council.
“Study committees are a valuable resource to lawmakers, giving us the opportunity to hear testimony from a variety of professionals, advocates and constituents,” Messmer said. “The discussions and information shared during these meetings help the General Assembly consider how to address specific issues facing our state.”
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.
