Ind. Law - Many bills still awaiting Gov. Pence's action [Updated numberous times]

To see what bills remain for Governor Pence's action tomorrow, check out the Governor's 2013 Bill Watch page. I count nearly 60 bills still awaiting the Governor's signature or veto.

Unfortunately as of this writing the list is not up-to-date, as for example SEA 305 reportedly has been signed, and neither the Governor's list nor the General Assembly bill page show it.

It doesn't seem unreasonable to expect that this information would be kept current ...

[Updated at 7:45 PM
] The Governor has updated his list and SEA 305 is now shown as signed, but the General Assembly bill page for SEA 305 remains out-of-date. About 54 bills still await the Governor's action. A number of these are of interest to the ILB.

[Updated at 7:47 AM, 5/11/13] The Governor's list indicates that among the handful of bills he signed yesterday was HEA 1135, regulating midwives. (The General Assembly bill page for SEA 305 remains out-of-date, showing the last action as "signed by the Speaker of the House").

[Updated at 1:00 PM] Gov. Pence has now signed several education bills (press release) plus, according to several reporters' tweets, SEA 621, which makes changes to Marion County government. None of his actions today, May 11th, show up yet on his 2013 Bill Watch page.

[Updated at 1:14 PM] Here now is the press release on SEA 621.

[Updated at 3:53 PM] It's over, the Gov. has signed all the remaining bills needing action by May 13th.

At some point, this useful 20-page chart from LSA will be updated with the final action.
