Burton to serve on summer study committee on pensions

Written by emallers on July 6th, 2017

State Rep. Woody Burton was recently named to three summer study committees, which examine assigned topics, gather testimonies and recommend potential legislation.

Burton will serve as vice chair of the Interim Study Committee on Pension Management Oversight and as a member of the Interim Study Committee on Financial Institutions and Insurance and the Military Base Planning Council.

“Over the next few months, interim study committees will have the chance to build on progress made during the legislative session and explore topics that can be addressed next year,” Burton said. “Each year, the Interim Study Committee on Pension Management Oversight takes a hard look at the state’s public pensions, vetting any proposed changes. This committee plays a critical role in maintaining Indiana’s public pension plans so hardworking Hoosiers are able to save for and enjoy retirement with peace of mind.”

Burton said interim study committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, can be viewed live online at iga.in.gov. This site also provides committee calendars and meeting agendas. Members of the public are welcomed to attend and testify.
