• Lawson Get’s New Duties Helping Hoosiers

    August 03, 2010 No comments

    Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long of Fort Wayne appointed State
    Sen. Connie Lawson of Danville, a member of the Census Data Advisory
    Committee last week.

    Long also tapped Lawson to serve as a member of the Commission on
    Developmental Disabilities, the Commission on Mental Health, the Infants
    and Toddlers with Disabilities Interagency Coordinating Council and the
    Medicaid Work Incentives Council.

    During summer and fall months when the legislature is not in session
    full-time, lawmakers utilize bipartisan interim study committees and
    commissions to conduct in-depth research into complicated, complex issues
    facing Hoosiers. Often their work results in solutions and legislation that
    might otherwise go unaccomplished during the fast pace of the winter- and
    springtime legislative session, Long said.

    Long said the Census Data Advisory Committee will research ways to ensure
    the state’s redistricting process is fair and accurate for the 2011
    redistricting process and explore the best practices of other states,
    including the option of establishing an independent commission to draw
    district boundaries in the future.

    More information about committee topics, schedules and agendas will be
    available online at www.in.gov/legislative/interim
