STATEHOUSE (July 9, 2021) – State Rep. Beau Baird (R-Greencastle) recently received appointments to serve on the Interim Study Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Interim Study Committee on Environmental Affairs.
Throughout the summer and fall, Indiana state legislators serve on interim study committees where they work on policy, examine top issues, gather testimony and recommend legislation ahead of the legislative session kicking off in January.
“Indiana is one of the largest farming states in the nation, with agriculture contributing billions of dollars to our economy,” Baird said. “Continuing to support this important industry while preserving our natural resources is always imperative for state lawmakers.”
According to Baird, members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify at committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. Hearings are also livestreamed and archived online at iga.in.gov, where committee calendars and meeting agendas are posted.
