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.

It has been a busy week at the Statehouse as legislators prepare for the mid-session exchange of bills. Both chambers convened often this week to take action on legislation, with a total of 74 bills passing third reading. Both chambers will convene on Monday, February 22 for further action before the third reading deadline. 

After the deadlines pass early next week, there will be a break from committees as the passed bills begin working through the legislative process outside their chamber of origin. Committee meetings will resume the following week.

IndyBar members can request that the Legislative Committee track specific legislation by contacting committee chair Mindy Westrick at mwestrick@indianaenergy.org. Click here to view the full Bill Watch reports.
