Holcomb Visits Northwest Indiana to Ceremonially Sign Two Region-Focused Bills

INDIANAPOLIS – Today, Governor Eric J. Holcomb visited Michigan City and East Chicago to ceremonially sign two bills focused on improving the lives of Northwest Indiana residents.

First, he joined House Minority Leader Scott Pelath (D-Michigan City), state Rep. Hal Slager (R-Schererville), Michigan City Mayor Ron Meer as well as other local elected officials and community leaders for a ceremonial bill signing of House Enrolled Act 1144. This bill increases regional quality of place by helping double track the South Shore Rail Line to make Northwest Indiana a stronger magnet for jobs and workforce talent.

The governor then travelled to East Chicago, gathering with state Sen. Lonnie Randolph (D-East Chicago), state Sen. Ed Charbonneau (R-Valparaiso), state Rep. Earl Harris, Jr. (D-East Chicago), East Chicago Mayor Anthony Copeland, and other state and local leaders for a ceremonial bill signing of House Enrolled Act 1344. This bill provides assistance for residents living in lead contaminated portions of the USS Lead Superfund site in East Chicago. 

Photos of both ceremonial signings can be found at http://www.in.gov/gov/2387.htm.

Visit the 2017 Bill Watch webpage to view these and other bills the governor has signed into law.
