The 2009 session of the Indiana General Assembly adjourned sine die on Wednesday April 30, 2009. Lawmakers failed to pass HB1001, or the budget bill; therefore Governor Daniels will have to call a special session. The Senate passed the bill 37-13, but minutes later the bill failed in the House, 27-71, with all the Republicans and 24 Democrats voting no.

While our legislators did not talk much about tax increases this year, there were several bills at the State House that would have dramatically increased our utility rates. These bills were loaded with trackers, which allow the utilities to avoid rate cases by raising rates when their costs go up, without ever having to lower rates when their costs go down.

Rather than discuss each bill by number, as that would be an incredibly difficult process to recreate in a coherent manner, I think it best to discuss the issues that the utilities and the Governor’s office attempted to pass into law, and surely will be back with in future sessions. Their efforts ultimately failed. For the most part, we have Rep. Moses, Rep. Grubb, and believe it or not, AT&T, (yes, I said AT&T), to thank for stopping this language.

The good news is that despite the utilities' attempt to hijack Indiana's energy policy, there were also several good bills down at the State House this year that would have moved Indiana a lot closer to the reality of a renewable energy and energy efficient future. Shifting from fossil-fuels to renewables and efficiency is better for our health, better for our environment, and it will create the jobs that we desperately need to jump-start our economy right now.

The 2008 session of the Indiana General Assembly adjourned sine die on Friday, March 14, 2008. Throughout the session media attention was focused on reforming Indiana’s property tax system. While this issue dominated the discussions, hundreds of other bills and resolutions were considered, over 150 of which have or will soon become law.
