The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
. That was the assessment of Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar as he reviewed the 2019 session of the Indiana General assembly to date. Leading the “good list,” has been the positive movement of the Governor’s Workforce Bill (HB1002) that provides much-needed guidelines for career/technical education. Also making the good list was SB233 that doubles the business personal property exemption and SB 563, the Governor’s Economic Development package. Brinegar believes the denial of HB 1565, SB 425, HB 1444 – all dealing with tobacco sales reforms – falls under the “bad” category as does passing over the HB 1194 Regional Economic Development bill. And The Ugly? The hijacking of the aforementioned Bias Crimes Bill.
