Week 2 of the Indiana General Assembly

The Indiana General Assembly was in full action this week, as they posted and heard bills, and passed multiple bills out of committee and the floor.

ILF Advocacy in Week 2

ILF testified in support of the library-friendly elements of HB1113, the annual DLGF bill . HB1113 included provisions to 1) align the library budget adoption date with other units (Nov. 1); 2) c ontinue notice provisions for Local Income Tax (LIT), as libraries receive on average 23% of funding from LIT; and 3) allow large property tax refunds to be spread over multiple years. This last provision helps all units, including libraries in areas of these types of appeals, such as in Lake County.

ILF monitored bills related to ILF Policy Priorities . M embers may see ILF's bill list linked in the Bose Report .
