“Ahead of the next legislative session, the interim affords us time to meet with stakeholders to have in-depth conversations on big issues that are impacting our state,” Donato said. “I look forward to meeting with my peers in the Senate and House as we work to make Indiana a better place to live, work and raise a family.”

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.
