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.
This week was the final week of committee meetings for legislators as the end of session rapidly approaches. Twenty-eight bills were heard in committee, and many more are advancing through second and third readings.
Next week signifies the beginning of Death Watch, as bills whose amendments are not agreeable to both chambers are either assigned to conference committees for final discussion or cease to advance any further. Bills whose amendments received a concurrence vote will proceed to the Governor for final action. A report of the actions taken by the Governor can be found here.
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.
