State Sen. Eric Bassler to Serve on Study Committees

 State Sen. Eric Bassler (R-Washington) will serve on the following study committees, commission and council during the summer and fall months to help prepare for the 2018 session of the General Assembly:

  • Interim Study Committee on Financial Institutions and Insurance

  • Interim Study Committee on Pension Management Oversight

  • Alcohol Code Revision Commission

  • Military Base Planning Council

“During the next few months we will be taking a deeper dive into important issues facing Indiana,” Bassler said. “Recent events show that our alcohol laws need to be evaluated. I look forward to working together with fellow lawmakers to identify ways to revise our laws to do what is best for Hoosiers and businesses around the state. I’m also glad to put my knowledge of the finance and insurance industries to use by serving on the Financial Institutions and Insurance Study Committee. ”

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.
