Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Indiana Chief Justice Brent Dickson has appointed Justice Loretta Rush and Henry County Chief Probation Officer Susan Lightfoot to the newly created Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana. He made the appointments Wednesday.

Their terms begin July 1 and end June 30, 2017, unless a successor is not appointed by that date, in which the term will continue until one is appointed.

The commission was created by the General Assembly this year through Senate Enrolled Act 125. It will study issues and take actions relating to children in the state, as well as work with other entities on issues concerning vulnerable youth. The commission will also review legislation.

The commission is made up of 18 members including legislators, the superintendent of public instruction, the attorney general and a member of the governor’s staff. Under the new law, Rush, as appointed judge, will serve as chairperson of the commission for 2013. Chairs will rotate between the judge or justice, a legislative member, and the member of the governor’s staff.
