Thanks to the help of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, the IndyBar Legislative Committee is currently monitoring select criminal law-related legislation, and you can view the report here. Check out additional legislative updates below.
In addition to the full list of legislation in the report above, the IndyBar Legislative Committee is closely monitoring the progress of SJR16 for Criminal Justice Section members. IndyBar leadership will continue to share information and updates regarding this specific piece of legislation.
The legislators were busy this week as they progressed towards the midpoint of session. This week 31 bills passed in the House and 29 passed in the Senate. Both chambers have convened as a body more often than the adjusted COVID schedule initially predicted.
The number of bills exchanged between the Chambers increased this week and many of the priority bills are on track to reach the Governor’s desk soon. As of this morning, 52 bills are scheduled to be heard in committee next week.
IndyBar members can request that the Legislative Committee track specific legislation by contacting committee chair Mindy Westrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to view the full Bill Watch reports.
