With just over a month of the 2017 General Assembly remaining, the Indiana Chamber has updated its legislative priorities. The business advocacy organization has matched major issues with bills that have been introduced in the House and Senate and provides perspective on its stance on the individual measures.
The Chamber also discusses whether it supports, opposes, supports in part or opposes in part issues that affect businesses, communities, families and individuals.
Bills the Chamber supports include:
- House Bills 1004 and Senate Bill 276 would expand state-funded prekindergarten, an effort the Chamber should "take priority for the state’s limited dollars."
- House Bill 1002, which deals with long-term infrastructure funding, would help cover an estimated $1.2 billion additional dollars per year to improve road and bridge infrastructure issues.
Bills the Chamber supports in part include:
- House Bill 1001, the state’s biennial budget bill, which it says shows evidence of "fiscal prudence" because it attempts to align spending with revenue projections.
Bills the Chamber opposes include:
Senate Bill 379, which would give Clark and Floyd County residents who pay tolls on area bridges that cross the Ohio River an income tax deduction.
