2018 Legislative Study Topics Set

Legislative leaders convened in Indianapolis yesterday to set the agenda for the Indiana General Assembly’s interim study committees. The following topics impacting health care will be given a closer look by committees during the summer and fall:

  • Issues related to medical marijuana
  • The impact that opioid treatment programs have on the neighborhoods and communities in their immediate area
  • The impact that joining the nurse licensure compact would have on the delivery of nursing services to residents of Indiana
  • Imposing conditions to receive benefits from the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Medicaid
  • The fiscal, economic, and workforce development impact of Indiana smoking rates
  • A multiyear review, analysis, and evaluation of the efficiency and effectiveness of workforce-related programs

Interim study committees will be chaired by the Indiana House of Representatives and will likely begin meeting after the Fourth of July holiday. IHA will be watching these committees closely and will keep members informed as new information is available. Read the full list of interim study committee topics on the Indiana General Assembly website.​​
