Brothers and Sisters,
Late Friday night, April 21, 2017, the Indiana General Assembly concluded its work and adjourned sine die. As always, the session proved to be long and seemed to drag in the last two weeks. In the end, much was accomplished. While issues were hard fought, the session seemed to lack the acrimony of recent past sessions.
Legislative Report No. 16, 2017 is attached. All dead bills have been excluded and the complete legislative history of all surviving bills has been included to demonstrate the arduous process of passing a new law. We have no reason to believe that Governor Holcomb will use his veto power in an effort to derail any of the bills included.
A complete report will be given at the Annual FOP Conference held June 15th, 16th, and 17th, 2017 in South Bend, Indiana. If you are in need of any additional information, please contact either President Bill Owensby or me.
Leo T. Blackwell
