INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Reps. Wes Culver, R-Goshen, and Tim Wesco, R-Osceola, will serve on interim study committees.

Culver has been appointed to the Indiana Tourism Council and the Commission on Developmental Disabilities, his office said in a press release.

The developmental disabilities body “is tasked with developing a long-range plan to further develop cost-effective, innovative models for community-based services, along with reviewing and making recommendations that identify unmet needs for developmental disability services,” Culver said.

Wesco has been appointed chairman of the Committee on Child Care. The body “will take a comprehensive look at the state of child care in Indiana. We will examine regulations and make recommendations to further quality, options, access and affordability in child care for Hoosier families,” Wesco said in a press release.

Wesco, who hopes to tour child care centers and related facilities in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties, welcomes input at h21@iga.in.gov or 317-234-3827.

Interim study committees look at issues after each legislative session. They typically begin meeting in July and wrap up in October.
