Indiana General Assembly Nears End Of Session With Lots Left To Do

by

The Indiana General Assembly could wrap up its 2013 session by the end of the week. Lawmakers have already sent at least one hot-button measure, placing new limits on abortion pills, to Gov. Mike Pence.

There are still many big issue items to be ironed out including the new state budget.

An effort to back major improvements at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, either through state grants or state-backed loans, is still being hashed out.

A possible gambling expansion is still on the table, along with changes to how much the industry pays in taxes.

A compromise plan to expand the state's school voucher program is still being worked on, and lawmakers must still decide whether Indiana will participate in the national Common Core education standards.

And lawmakers still have to decide whether they will seek an additional review of the state's plan to buy coal-fired gas from the developers of a plant in Rockport.

The general assembly is set to adjourn April 29th.
