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.

It has been a busy week at the Statehouse as legislators move to advance legislation before the 2nd reading deadline of April 19. This week we saw a total of 47 bills heard in committee. Additionally, between the two chambers a total of 34 bills passed 2nd reading and 36 passed 3rd reading. 

Next week, there are 54 bills scheduled to be heard in committees. We anticipate this fast pace to continue for the remainder of session. 

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