Indiana State legislators reconvened today (1/7/13); Deadlines for 2013 Indiana General Assembly January 7, 2013

Dear Indiana DG Readers:

Indiana state lawmakers reconvened today (1/07/2013) at the State House in Indianapolis. 2013 is the so-called “long session” in which a two-year budget is the primary agenda item.

One week from today (1/13/2013) Indiana Governor-elect Mike Pence and Indiana Lt. Governor-elect Sue Ellsperman will be sworn into office.

Please find below a list of the upcoming deadlines for legislative action during the 2013 session. In general, the first round of the session, i.e. House Bills in the House and Senate Bills in the Senate need to pass the first house, 2/25/13 and 2/20/13, respectively. Generally, most committees only meet once maybe twice a week unless it’s the House Ways and Means Committee or Senate Appropriations Committee which deal with the state budget.

Please watch your local newspaper and/or local Chamber of Commerce to find out when and where Third House, Cracker Barrel or Legislative Forums are scheduled in your community. These are sessions held back in state legislators districts and frequently held on Saturday mornings. I am compiling this information now. If you have information about these meetings in your community, please email it to me at Laura.Arnold@IndianaDG.net.
