NDIANAPOLIS—The second session of the 118th Indiana General Assembly has reconvened and lawmakers have begun considering numerous proposals. While regular business was delayed due to inclement weather affecting most of the state, the Senate came to order and assigned bills to their respective committees. Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) said he and fellow caucus members are ready to focus on a number of measures crafted to improve the lives of Hoosier working families.

“The Senate Democratic Caucus is looking forward to advocating for a number of initiatives to raise Hoosier incomes, strengthen our schools, and ensure the long-term success of our state,” said Sen. Lanane. “We also want to make sure that we continue to be a welcoming state to all residents and businesses looking to make Indiana their home.”

A non-budgetary year, the second session of the Indiana General Assembly is considered a “short session” and is set by law to adjourn on March 14th.
