[s43] Sen. Nugent: General Assembly Kicks Off 2013 Budget Session

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Nov. 20, 2012) — State Sen. Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg) gathered with fellow legislators today at the Statehouse for Organization Day — the ceremonial start of the 118th Indiana General Assembly’s budget session.

Organization Day is marked by the swearing in of new General Assembly members as well as the annual first roll call of all state lawmakers. This day also provides each House and Senate caucus with the opportunity to organize before session officially begins on Jan. 7.

The 2013 session is a budget year, meaning lawmakers will draft a comprehensive proposal to fund government services for the next two years. By law, the 2013 legislative session must be completed no later than April 29.

“Passing the state’s fifth-consecutive balanced budget will be a central part of the upcoming session, but there will be many other important topics to discuss that will have a significant impact on Hoosiers,” Nugent said. “One of the most pressing issues the legislature will face this session is responding to the federal government’s new healthcare law in a way that’s financially responsible and works best for Hoosiers.”

Nugent said additional Senate priorities for the 2013 session include:

•    Building on Indiana’s low-tax, job-friendly environment
•    Continuing fiscal responsibility
•    Protecting Hoosier children by improving Indiana’s Department of Child Services
•    Improving education
   
As the 2013 session gets under way, Nugent encourages Senate District 43 residents to contact him with any questions or comments they may have. Nugent can be reached via email at Senator.Nugent@iga.in.gov or by phone at 1-800-382-9467.
