While the first week of any Indiana General Assembly session is typically slow, the second week brings critical filing deadlines – and a flood of proposed legislation! Following a Tuesday evening interlude for Governor Mike Pence’s State of the State address, over 1,050 bills were up for consideration by Wednesday, January 14th.
Your Indy Chamber advocacy team is working in overdrive, monitoring some 550 of these bills between now and April 30, with special attention dedicated to the following priority issues:
Regional Cities Initiative
Equity in Local Government Funding
Alternate proposals to address local government funding equity include:
Early Childhood Education
In the meantime, we hope you will join us Tuesday, February 3rd for the next installment of our Pancakes & Politics series, featuring a special preview and discussion of the Metro Indy Economic Growth Strategy with Indy Chamber President and CEO Michael Huber, Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, and Eli Lilly Vice President of Global Taxes and Chief Tax Executive David Lewis.

Stay tuned for our next update as “The Indy Chamber 500” begins to move through the committee process in the coming week.
