The Education(EDIC) Interim Committee is a joint bipartisan committee of the legislature that meets between legislative sessions. The EDIC’s statutory duties include review of proposed administrative rules and draft legislation, as well as completing any studies assigned to it. The committee also monitors the operations of, and provides information to, the State Board of Education, the Board of Public Education, the Board of Regents of Higher Education, and the Office of Public Instruction. As the Montana Historical Society, the Montana Arts Council, and the Montana State Library Commission are allocatedto the State Board of Education, EDIC also monitors the operation of those entities.

The committee's work plan outlines how it will carry out its statutory duties and assigned study, as well as describing the addtional topics the committee decided to explore.
