Legislative Update

from IAUW:

Follow along during the 2018 legislative session
The 2018 session of the Indiana General Assembly (IGA) began on January 3 and will end no later than March 14.  This is a "short session" where lawmakers will discuss a range of issues that likely have minimal fiscal impact because it is not a budget-making year.  We are at the halfway point in session where bills that passed one chamber will now have the chance to move forward in the other chamber.  There were a total of 901 bills introduced this session and only 302 are still alive.
Below are some helpful links that will help you follow along during the legislative session.
