Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) is serving as vice-chair of the interim committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources.

During the summer and fall, State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) will serve as vice-chair of the Interim Study Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources.

The committee is expected to discuss the regulation of fenced hunting, potential funding for Indiana’s recreational trails and other key agriculture issues.

“Farming is one of Indiana’s most important industries and this committee will discuss ways to further its success,” Leising said. “My hope is that we will continue work on a permanent solution to Indiana’s agriculture property-tax system.”

Leising was also appointed to the following summer study committees, commissions and councils:

  • Community and Home Options to Institutional Care for the Elderly and Disabled Board
  • Corn Marketing Council
  • Indiana Protection and Advocacy Services Commission
  • State Fair Advisory Committee

When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers are assigned to 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 House of Representatives and eight from the Senate.
