State legislators are scheduled to return to the State House tomorrow (01/07/09) and will meet until the end of April 2009. This year is the so-called “long session” in which state lawmakers adopt a two year budget. Third House meetings are an excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with your local state legislators to get an update on important issues. The Third House is you the voter. The other two houses are the Indiana State Senate and the Indiana House of Representatives.
