This Week at the Legislature: Key Issues Remain

February 22, 2010

This week is the deadline for the legislature to approve bills in both chambers . Ed Feigenbaum, editor of the Indiana Legislative Insight newsletter, says there are a number of bills which remain. Among them, a bill to delay certain fees on businesses to pay for unemployment insurance:

“The thought was adding another tax, increasing a tax at this time was not way to promote job creation. Unfortunately, by repealing this or delaying it what it would do is also increase the fee on some small businesses that were in line for a deceased because of their claim experience.”

Feigenbaum adds another bill to watch for is the lobbying and legislator ethics reform bill, including whether university lobbyists should start being required to report gifts to lawmakers.
