Ind. Gov't. - "New General Assembly session convenes Tuesday"

Dan Carden reports in the NWI Times:

INDIANAPOLIS — Newly elected and returning members of the Indiana General Assembly, along with their families and friends, will gather Tuesday at the Statehouse for the ceremonial opening of the 2017 legislative session.

The centerpiece of the Organization Day meeting of the 100-member House and 50-member Senate is the formal swearing-in of lawmakers who won their seats in the elections held two weeks ago.

The Legislature will adjourn Tuesday afternoon and not return to the Statehouse until the first week of January.

In the meantime, representatives and senators will be working with the nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency to craft their proposals for new laws that will be debated, amended and possibly enacted during the four-month regular session that runs until April 29.
