Press release from State Rep. Randy Frye
State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg)
(Indianapolis, Ind.) – State Representative Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) has been appointed to serve on the Integrated Public Safety Commission, the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation, the Military Base Planning Council and the Joint Study Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Assessment and Solutions.
“I am humbled by my appointment to these four committees,” said Rep. Frye. “This summer will be a tremendous opportunity to do further study on the all-important issues of transportation, public safety, homeland security and defense.”
Every year after the legislative session is completed, the Legislative Council meets to assign topics for study during the interim as well as establish any new interim committee that is needed to examine a particular issue. Most interim committees begin meeting in July with their work wrapping up toward the end of October.
Interim committees are an integral part of the legislative process. Even though session is adjourned for 2013, representatives continue their legislative duties by conducting in-depth studies of various topics assigned to their committees. Interim committees with specific expertise receive public testimony and work out the details of proposed legislation before it is introduced in the 2014 session.
“As a retired firefighter, I am particularly excited about working this summer on issues related to public safety,” said Rep. Frye. “The reports made by our committees will be beneficial for legislation drafted next session.”
