Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Nov. 20, 2012) — State Sen. Greg Walker (R-Columbus) 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.

“This year, passing Indiana’s fifth-consecutive balanced budget is the top priority,” Walker said. “By living within our means as a state, we promote a strong economic climate that fosters job growth and helps Hoosier families thrive.”

Walker said other Senate priorities for the 2013 session include:

•    Protecting Hoosier children by improving Indiana’s Department of Child Services
•    Improving education
•    Building on Indiana’s low-tax, job-friendly environment
•    Reforming Indiana’s criminal penalties
   
Additionally, Walker has been appointed as chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics and will serve as a member of the following committees in 2013 and 2014:

•    Commerce, Economic Development and Technology
•    Insurance
•    Financial Institutions
•    Pensions and Labor
•    Tax and Fiscal Policy

As the 2013 session gets under way, Walker encourages Senate District 41 residents to contact him with any questions or comments they may have. Walker can be reached via email at Senator.Walker@iga.in.gov or by phone at 1-800-382-9467.
