State Budget Impact: Insiders "Post"cast
Sessions of Indiana's General Assembly last two years, with this year (2017) being the “long” session (60 session days) dedicated primarily to adoption of the biennial budget.
Guest speakers: State Senators Jean Leising (IN-42), Jeff Raatz (IN-27) and State Representative Cindy Ziemke (IN-55)
Bills that affect many aspects of our business operations are being discussed in the State's General Assembly this year. Infrastructure spending and education are two of the top issues on the agenda, with discussions about new taxes to assist with funding roads. Our state's road funding needs to be fixed now or face a crisis. Major bills on energy and utilities were also introduced this Session. Every business owner and taxpaying citizen should attend this session to understand the fiscal plan being enacted for the array of transportation infrastructure and other important projects critical to Indiana's economic growth.
