MONTANA ISSUES AND LEGISLATION
Interim Committees for 2013-2014
During each legislative session, legislators identify issues they want to study in more depth. Theyappoint interim committees to conduct these and other studies during the interims between sessions. The House and Senate leadership decides on who will be on the interim committees for the interim. Therefore, the members of theinterim committees serve one 20-month term. The committees often invite experts to present information to them. Members of the public also get a chance to have their say.
Legislators use what they learn from the interim studies to make well- informed decisions about what bills to consider during the next session.
