2024 Legislative Study Committees: More important than you think

During the recent session, the House of Representatives identified major areas of concern that required additional legislative scrutiny. To better understand these important and sometimes controversial topics, special study committees are often formed to examine issues in-depth. Over the course of several months or even years, legislators meet to hear from experts, advocates, opponents and members of the public around the state. Based on this research and data-gathering, the committee produces recommendations that may be considered for future legislation or policy efforts.


In fact, many of our recent priority initiatives and landmark legislation is a result of study committee efforts. In recent years, this includes tax reform, health care modernization, Pre-K funding and other major issues facing our state. This session, the House of Representatives passed several legislative study committees to study priorities including workforce licensing, higher education, agriculture and health care.
