State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) will serve as Vice Chair of the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation during the summer and fall to help prepare lawmakers for the 2019 legislative session.

“The Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation will learn more about vehicle right-of-use programs, which are currently prohibited in our state,” Crider said. “These programs give people exclusive use of a vehicle for a recurring fee through a subscription service, and I am ready to get to work exploring how these programs would work in Indiana.”

Crider also said he will serve as a member on the Counterterrorism and Security Council, Indiana Homeland Security Foundation and Integrated Public Safety Commission.

When Indiana’s part-time legislature is not in session, lawmakers serve on 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, made up of 16 voting members — eight from the Senate and eight from the House of Representatives.
