Bill Watch is a service of the IndyBar Legislative Committee. During each week of the legislative session, the IndyBar will distribute an updated report, through the support of Faegre Baker Daniels, to its members indicating the progress and recent actions taken on the bills being monitored by the association.

This week marked the halfway point of the Indiana General Assembly’s 2015 session. Third reading deadlines passed on Wednesday for both the House and the Senate, and the legislature had its busiest week of floor votes yet. House Bill 1001, the state’s biennial budget, and House Bill 1540, a bill that would bring major changes to Indiana’s gaming industry, passed out of the House this week. House Bill 1624, which would have legalized Sunday sales of alcohol, lost support and was allowed to die in the House. The Religious Freedom Restoration bill passed out of the Senate, and Senate Bill 62, the bill shortening ISTEP requirements for 2015, was signed into law.
