Legislative Leaders to Have Their Say

Members of the Indiana General Assembly are coming to town November 18 for their annual Organization Day. What do they do on that largely ceremonial occasion? Organize things.

The day before, however, is when leaders of the four caucuses come together to share some insights on what might happen when the action heats up in January. The Indiana Chamber’s Central Indiana Legislative Preview takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, November 17 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The best things about the preview: you get to ask questions and make comments, and whether it’s the wonderful food or just the pleasant atmosphere of a few hundred interested people in the audience — the legislators typically speak their minds. They don’t mind emphasizing their priorities and noting a few things that aren’t likely to happen if they have any say in the matter.

So, make your reservation, take a slightly longer than normal lunch and move from the political to legislating mode on November 17.
