Interim Summer Study Committees

The interim study committees have been formalized (thanks to the Indiana Law Blog for the document).  Of note are:

  • The School Safety Interim Study Committee that will develop best practices for School Resource Officers.
  • The Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana that will address issues with vulnerable youth as assigned by SEA 125, and other topics.
  • The Commission on Education that will address various topics including whether family TANF benefits should be tied to school attendance by the children.
  • The Commission on Mental Health and Addiction that will address addiction treatment, mental health crisis intervention teams, and children’s social, emotional, and behavioral plans.

To access information about the interim study committees, including membership, agendas, meeting schedules and minutes, go here — on the left side, midway down is “Interim Study Committees” with links to the individual study committees and the calendar of meetings.

Last year, there was terrific progress on the special issues with children during the interim study committees, so consider participating in person or by contacting the participating legislators about issues.
