Indiana's 2011 Legislative Session Welcome to the 5th edition of FV Indiana's Guide to the Legislative Session. This year brings a "long session", stating on January 5th, 2011, where a two year state budget will be set. The continued economic downturn will create significant stresses on budget planning and resources. It will be more important than ever for Families to be involved, sharing your experience. This guide is intended to be a reference issue; in it you will find information on the budget process, how a bill becomes a law, definitions and translations of acronyms and information on the House and Senate leadership. If you are in a district with a new legislator, make the effort to introduce yourself and share your perspective. If your legislator is returning continue to build your relationship. Watch FV Indiana and other sources for action alerts as the session progresses. If you have information about the session to share please contact fv.indiana@gmai
