Rep. Slager works to bring positive change to his community

STATEHOUSE— The 2013 legislative session has come to an end, and Rep. Hal Slager (R-Schererville) is pleased to see three of his top priority bills become law: House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1585, HEA 1481 and HEA 1002.

“I am very happy with what I was able to accomplish during my first session as a state representative,” said Rep. Slager. “The opportunity to work with other members of the Legislature, Republican and Democrat, allowed me to help pass legislation that will impact our community in a very constructive way.” 

HEA 1481 will encourage overweight trucks to spread their load over more axles.  This bill will give INDOT the time to adopt appropriate rules and fees for the use of our roadways while remaining competitive for shippers.

HEA 1585 will result in lower bills for all residents of Calumet Township, especially in Griffith.  This legislation establishes maximum spending guidelines for administration of township assistance.  In the event that the township cannot achieve the established budget restraint by 2015, HEA 1585 would allow the town of Griffith to join a different township with a lower tax rate. This legislation will give tax relief to all of Calumet Township, lowering taxes and providing more assistance to those who need it most.

Although Rep. Slager did not author HEA 1002, it is important for all Lake County residents and businesses.  It creates the Indiana Career Council (ICC), which will coordinate the participants in the state’s educational, job skills and career training systems to address the “skills gap”. The ICC will work to improve coordination, communication and vision for Indiana’s workforce training and career preparation systems.  Lake County has a diverse pool of hard working potential employees who will definitely benefit. 

“I entered this session focused on being a voice for our community at the Statehouse. It has been an honor to be a member of the Indiana House at a time when we passed legislation that will positively impact Indiana for years to come. I am very optimistic in looking ahead at Indiana’s future. The tools are in place for Hoosiers to realize a high-quality lifestyle; now is the time to seize it,” said Rep. Slager
