Ind. Gov't. - "Ind. lawmakers face ambitious agenda"

This long, must-read story yesterday in the Logansport Pharos-Tribune, reported by Maureen Hayden, gives a good overview of the upcoming 30-day session. It begins:

INDIANAPOLIS — Lawmakers are crafting an aggressive agenda for the new year that includes a tax break for businesses, preschool funding for the poor, road spending and a divisive constitutional amendment — all packaged into a so-called “short session” of the Legislature.

A significant part of the workload has been cast by Republican Gov.
