[s12] Sen. Yoder: General Assembly Kicks Off 2013 Budget Session

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Nov. 20, 2012) — State Sen. Carlin Yoder (R-Middlebury) 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 a balanced budget and ensuring that essential state services have appropriate funding is no easy task,” Yoder said. “It is my job to be the voice for those in Northern Indiana, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my constituents during this upcoming session.”

Yoder said Senate priorities for the 2013 session include:

•    Continuing fiscal responsibility
•    Protecting Hoosier children by improving Indiana’s Department of Child Services
•    Improving education by promoting school choice and giving our educators necessary resources
•    Building on Indiana’s low-tax, job-friendly environment
•    Reforming Indiana’s criminal penalties
   
Additionally, Yoder has been appointed as chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources and ranking member of the Committee on Education and Career Development. He will also serve as a member of the Senate Committee on Utilities in 2013 and 2014.
                                                                                                                                      
As the 2013 session gets under way, Yoder encourages Senate District 12 residents to contact him with any questions or comments they may have. Yoder can be reached via email at Senator.Yoder@iga.in.gov or by phone at 1-800-382-9467.
