State Senator Karen Tallian, D-Portage, has been reappointed to serve as an
advisor on the State Budget Committee, a bipartisan and bicameral body
charged with hearing initial budget requests and making a budget
recommendation to the General Assembly.
The Budget Committee’s budget recommendation will become the basis for
lawmakers work in crafting a new two-year state budget in 2013.
This committee meets throughout the year and provides continuing legislative
oversight of budget implementation, including major state-funded capital
projects. The next meeting is scheduled for July 25.
This year, Tallian will also serve on the Public Officers Compensation
Advisory Commission, Child Custody and Support Advisory Committee,
Environmental Quality Service Council, Indiana Heritage Trust Committee,
Pension Management Oversight Commission, Illiana Expressway Proposal Review
Committee and Unemployment Insurance Oversight Committee.
The Indiana General Assembly annually convenes interim study committees and
permanent commissions to conduct in-depth research and analysis of issues
affecting the state. Recommendations from these committees are often the
basis for future legislation. More information about committee topics,
schedules and agendas is available online at www.IN.gov/legislative/interim.
Tallian represents Senate District 4 which encompasses portions of northern
Porter County and Michigan, Coolspring and New Durham townships in LaPorte
