Senate update from Travis Holdman

Sen. Travis Holdman recently sent out the following legislative update from his office:
Indiana lawmakers returned to the Statehouse this week to begin the 2013 legislative session.

The next four months will be busy and productive as members of the General Assembly carefully craft a two-year state budget to fund essential services while continuing to live within our means. By law, the 2013 legislative session must be completed no later than April 29.

In addition to voting on a state budget, I am authoring several legislative proposals that may be heard by the General Assembly, including:
  • Senate Bill 114 - Requires child care provider applicants to undergo a national criminal history background check.
  • Senate Bill 125 - Establishes the Committee on Child Services Oversight.
  • Senate Bill 164 - Allows a prosecuting attorney to request a juvenile court to authorize a petition that a child is in need of services.

I also look forward to serving on five standing committees, where I will examine a wide range of important issues facing Hoosiers:
I am excited to get back to work for you. Please contact me any time:
