Interested parties across Indiana will be able to attend the upcoming meetings of the state’s new child commission via the Internet.

The Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana is scheduled to meet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 16 and Dec. 11 in Conference Rooms 1 & 2 at the Indiana Government Center South.

With help from the Indiana Department of Education, the sessions will be available at the commission’s temporary website. The October meeting will be videotaped, archived and shown online at a later date that has not been determined. The December meeting will be videotaped with a live stream and it will be archived online as well.

Also available on the website are the meeting agendas and materials.

The commission was created by the Indiana General Assembly during the 2013 session through a bill introduced by Sens. Travis Holdman, R-Markle, and John Broden, D-South Bend. In cooperation with other entities, the commission will study issues concerning vulnerable youth, review and make recommendations about pending legislation, and promote information sharing and best practices.

At the October meeting, the agenda calls for the commission to consider how it should be structured to perform its work along with its short-term and long-term goals. Other topics include a review of Indiana child welfare data and Indiana infant and child mortality as well as availability of services for vulnerable youth.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
