Thanks to the help of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, the IndyBar Legislative Committee is currently monitoring select environmental law-related legislation, and you can view the report here. Check out additional legislative updates below.
Another week at the statehouse has passed with legislators keeping an eye on the upcoming adjusted deadlines. As of March 23rd, all deadlines have been shifted up one week due to an announcement from House Speaker Todd Huston. The new second reading deadline is April 12th while Sine Die is now April 21st. The full adjusted calendar can be found here.
This week we saw a total of 49 bills heard in committee. Next week, there are roughly 45 bills scheduled to be heard in committees. We anticipate this fast pace to continue for the remainder of session, especially with the adjusted schedule.
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.
