The Education and Local Government (ELG) Interim Committee is a joint bipartisan committee of the legislature that meets between legislative sessions. The ELG’s statutory duties include review of proposed administrative rules and draft legislation, as well as completing any studies assigned to it. They also entail monitoring the operations of, and providing information to, the State Board of Education, Board of Public Education, Board of Regents of Higher Education, and the Office of Public Instruction. Finally, the ELG acts as a liaison with cities and counties, providing an important forum for discussion of strong, effective governance at the community and county level.

Committee members adopted a work plan (with amendments to be reflected in a summary document) and meeting schedule at their June 30 meeting.
