Ind. Gov't. - "Final countdown is on at the Statehouse"

Some thought this day would never come, but the General Assembly adjourns this coming Wednesday.

Dan Carden's story today in the NWI Times begins and ends:

The Indiana General Assembly will adjourn for the year on Wednesday, that much is certain.

But what happens at the Statehouse this week in the hours before the final words, "sine die," are spoken is likely to be something of a choose-your-own-adventure mix of power, politics, pride, patience and, last but not least, public policy.

The two-year state budget, House Bill 1001, always is the dominant legislative concern in the waning hours of the four-month session. * * *

But the adventure only lasts until Wednesday when the Legislature, by law, must adjourn. For many at the Statehouse, that day can't come soon enough.

"It's been a long session, and we're all eager to wrap things up," Long said.

Carden's story links to this dynamic list of 2015 legislation - that in blue has either passed or is at least still alive.
