Messmer to serve on interim committeesJune 15, 2020
From Local Sources
INDIANAPOLIS — State Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper, will serve on the Interim Study Committee on Environmental Affairs, the Legislative Council, the Compliance Advisory Panel and the Environmental Adjudication Director Selection Panel during the summer and fall to help prepare lawmakers for the 2021 legislative session.
“Several of the committees and councils I am serving on this interim focus on addressing environmental issues in our state, including improving our waterways, air quality and hazardous waste facilities,” Messmer said. “Interim discussions with industry experts are a critical part of the legislative process and I look forward to hearing testimony and participating in these conversations.”
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.
