Welcome to the 123rd Indiana General Assembly First Regular Session
Monday, January 9, 2023 is the latest day session must reconvene
To view and monitor the progress of the IVFA watched bills visit our “bill watch” list by going to the WEEKLY BILL WATCH as it will show the weekly status of the bills. We will begin building out our Bill Watch as we see bills filed for this session which will not be complete until Thursday, January 12, 2023 which is the Deadline for filing House bills and Friday, January 13, 2023 which is the deadline for filing Senate bills not later than 4:00 p.m.
We are currently attempting to file legislation on behalf or the IVFA addressing issues that will cover: funding, staffing, training at a minimum.
Check back often for updates as bills change from day to day as they are read on the chamber floors (both House and Senate), or as they are working their way through committee hearings.
We may again be calling on you during this session to reach out to your House and / or Senate Member should we need your voice to either support or oppose a bill being heard. This process truly makes a difference in the outcome of legislation on behalf of the IVFA, our membership and those we serve.
Your comments and input are always welcome. You can email, text, call Larry Curl (contact information below.)
Visit this site and this page often as things change daily throughout each session as the bills in which the IVFA is working and monitoring are being heard, altered, and voted on.
Please don’t forget fill out the I Am Responding contact information sheet if you have not already done so of if your information has changed since you last filled it out and email it to the IVFA as we are still building out our database and will use it during the session as a means of reaching out to you with updates, information, and requests for your assistance.
To find out who your State Representative or Senators are please visit Find Your Legislator.
If I can help with questions, concerns, or legislative issues please I am just a phone call, text or email away.
I invite any of you to join me at the State House should you have a free day and want to see the process. To assure you are seeing the true business of our General Assembly and or possible meet your legislators it's best if you will contact me a few days ahead (not required just better to assure they are meeting) and we can see what their calendar looks like on the day you wish to visit. Again contact me via Cell, Email, or text.
