From Decatur County's State Senator Chip Perfect -


The second half of the 2017 legislative session is officially underway.
The Indiana Senate will now be considering bills that passed the House of Representatives in the first half of session.

Here are some of the major topics we will address:

House Bill 1001 (Indianas two-year budget): As we take up this bill, we are dedicated to keeping our budget balanced, investing in K-12 education and finding a long-term solution to fund Indianas infrastructure.

House Bill 1002 (Long-term road funding): The General Assembly is committed to finding a long-term plan to close Indianas $1 billion annual road-funding gap so that we can take care of our existing roads, finish current projects, and plan for the future.

House Bill 1003 (Reforming testing in Indiana schools): This bill would replace the outdated ISTEP test with a new test that will take less time away from classroom instruction.

House Bill 1008 (Workforce development): This bill would establish a new grant program to provide financial aid to students working toward a job certificate in a high-value industry.
