Welcome to the 9th edition of FV Indiana's Guide to the Legislative Session . This year brings a "long session" that will begin on January 6, 2015, and is expected to last through April 29, 2015. This upcoming session is known as a budget year. This session will provide many opportunities for families to be involved, share your experience, and build relationships with legislators that will impact current and future decisions. This guide is intended to be a reference issue; in it you will find information on how a bill becomes a law, definitions and translations of acronyms and information on the House and Senate leadership. We encourage you to contact your legislators, make the effort to introduce yourself, share your perspective and continue to build a relationship. Watch FV Indiana and other sources for action alerts as the session progresses. If you have information about the session to share please call us at 317.944.8982 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hot Topi
