Interim Studies 2011-2012

Montana legislators have identified 17 topics they wish to study in depth during the interim between the 2011 and 2013 biennial sessions. The purpose of the studies is to help them make informed decisions about potential new policies they may wish to pursue in future sessions.

The 2011 Legislature passed five bills requiring specific studies. It also passed 16 resolutions requesting interim studies. After the 2011 session, lawmakers were polled to determine which of those studies they most wanted to pursue given limited time, staff, and money. The Legislative Council is ultimately responsible for making interim study assignments.
