2020 Indiana General Assembly

The 2020 session of the Indiana General Assembly is upon us. Once again, Hoosiers’ heads are turning to the 150 Indiana state legislators who make decisions affecting our everyday lives. This year is a "short" session, meaning it is not a budget year and the legislature will adjourn in March instead of April.

 

During each annual session of the Indiana General Assembly, Hoosiers rely on CAC to work diligently to protect consumers, our democracy, our environment, our natural resources, and vulnerable populations.

 

Consumer, Energy, & Utility legislation

CAC continues to work tirelessly to aid Indiana's transition away from coal and toward renewable energy. However, this session the coal interests are hitting the Indiana Statehouse hard, and have a terrible bill - HB1414 - that obstructs Indiana’s electric utilities’ ability to retire their dirty, expensive, and outdated coal-fired power plants. It is designed to keep Indiana in the dark ages by delaying and obstructing our transition to clean energy. Please click here to contact Gov. Holcomb and tell him NO COAL BAILOUT - VETO HB1414! You can follow the progress on HB1414 on our 2020 Consumer, Energy, and Utility Bill Watch page.

 

Redistricting legislation

CAC is committed to reforming the redistricting process in an effort to ensure fair and transparent elections and a functioning democracy where voters choose their politicians, not the other way around. We thought we had a real shot to get redistricting standards passed this session, but sadly, despite all the phone calls and emails they received from Hoosiers across Indiana, Sen. Walker (Chair of the Senate Elections Committee) refused to hear any of the redistricting reform bills in his committee, and Rep. Wesco (Chair of the House Elections Committee) ignored similar bills in his committee. You can learn more about this issue on our Redistricting Reform Campaign Page.

 

Please keep checking back throughout the session for our weekly Statehouse updates, as well updates on the bills that CAC is following and working on. If you have questions about the legislature or specific bills don’t hesitate to contact us via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter at any time. Our staff on the ground at the Indiana Statehouse this year will again be Lindsay Haake and our Executive Director, Kerwin Olson.
