Lucas to serve on two key summer study committees

State District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) has been appointed to serve on the interim study committees on public policy and elections.

Summer study committees examine the state’s top issues and recommend potential legislation.

“These committees give us a chance as legislators to explore topics that need extensive research,” Lucas said in a news release. “The Public Policy Committee will be examining the commercial ticketing market including scalping, ticket resales, speculative ticketing and ticket platforms. The discussions we have over the next few months will help us make decisions about the need for new legislation.”
