What are Indiana State Legislators up to this year?


Zoom in to learn more about what our state representatives are working on this year.  This is a budget year so lots of important issues are on the table including health care, education, infrastructure, environment and much more.  

Brown County has a new State Representative:  Dave Hall, covering District 62 which includes all of Brown County, part of Monroe and Jackson counties.  

Senator Eric Koch remains our state Senator for District 44 which includes all or part of the Counties of Brown, Monroe, Jackson, Orange, and Lawrence.  

All state legislators who represent Brown County and Monroe County have been invited to four virtual Town Halls, including: 

·       IN State Representatives: D46, Bob Heaton; D 60 Peggy Mayfield; D61 Matt Pierce, D62 Dave Hall  

·       IN State Senators:  D 44 Eric Koch and D Shelli Yoder D40

Please join the conversation, Saturday mornings, 9:30 am to 11:00 am, starting Saturday January 21st,  Next will be Feb. 11, March 11 and April 8.  Register to get the zoom link at the League of Women Voters Brown County website:     Scroll down to the Legislative Update registration links for each date.  

Legislators representing Brown County are already working on legislation such as elimination of local income tax councils, education/financial literacy, housing, township mergers, limitations on bail and other criminal matters, nuclear reactors, utility infrastructure and allocation of wastewater utility costs, and much more.  

These updates are sponsored by the nonpartisan League of Women Voters Brown County, League of Women Voters Bloomington-Monroe County, Brown County Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce.  

Each town hall will provide an opportunity for legislators to share information on their goals for this legislative session and attending constituents will have a chance to ask questions.  What are your questions?
