The Indiana General Assembly’s 2014 legislative session recently came to a close.
As your state lawmakers, we worked to advance ideas that will improve state and local communities. Here are a few bills I worked on this session that recently became law:
· Senate Enrolled Act 266 eliminates the need for property owners to repeatedly file property tax appeals every year by ensuring that revised assessments, as determined by a successful appeal, would be the basis for future assessments.
· Senate Enrolled Act 377 improves business accountability by requiring certain information to be provided to the Secretary of State's office. This was an effort by Secretary of State Connie Lawson to clarify Indiana code, making the law more consistent between different entities and allowing for administrative dissolution of inactive corporations.
House Enrolled Act 1039 establishes the Indiana Grown Initiative to market and promote Indiana-produced agricultural products
