Government Practice News

Posted on: Jan 29, 2021

Thanks to the help of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, the IndyBar Legislative Committee is currently monitoring select government practice-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 Government Practice Section members. IndyBar leadership will continue to share information and updates regarding this specific piece of legislation.

After a week away from the Statehouse, legislators returned eager to make progress. It has been busy week with many committees advancing bills to second reading. Approximately 117 bills were heard in committee this week. We expect to see a lot of movement during the next few weeks as the deadlines for second and third reading are approaching. Six bills have already passed third reading and garnered sponsors and co-sponsors to be heard in the other chamber ahead of time. 

Next week’s committee schedule shows 57 bills to be heard in the House and 31 in the Senate, though more may still be added.

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