Check out the eighth weekly installment of the Legislative Update for the 2012 legislative session, from The Indiana Judicial Center. The "summaries of bills of interest to the judiciary heard this week in committee" is now of bills in the second house.

Last week was the last week for bills to come out of committee in the second house. The plan announced by the leadership is for the General Assembly to adjourn on March 9th.

The summaries of the Feb. 24th discussions on SB 1 (Barnes self defense), SB 97 (public intoxication), SB 246 (lab technician testimony in criminal cases), HB 1204 (sex and violent offender registry) will be of particular interest to many.
