Ind. Courts - Still more on: Supreme Court hears legislative pay case this morning

Apparently Rep. Bosma is not considering compomise. Here is his news release:

Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) sent out the following statement today regarding the Indiana Supreme Court hearing the arguments of the legislative fines case.

STATEHOUSE – “I appreciate the Attorney General’s continued defense of the separation of powers doctrine clearly mandated by our state’s Constitution, and continue to hold that our court system has no jurisdiction to review or overturn the internal workings of the Indiana General Assembly. While some of our Democrat colleagues remain focused on defending their actions in absenting themselves from their constitutional obligations in 2011 and 2012, I am fully focused on the priorities that lie before us in 2013: continued budget integrity, workforce development for 21st century jobs and strong education opportunities for every Hoosier family.

“I look forward to the Supreme Court confirming the limitation of judicial authority over the legislative branch, and to getting the activities of the 2013 session underway.”
