The IndyBar’s Legislative Committee has launched Bill Watch 2012. Throughout the legislative session, the IndyBar will distribute each week through its electronic newsletter an updated report of progress and recent actions taken in regard bills and resolutions deemed of possible interest to IndyBar members.
Prior to the start of the session, the committee reviewed pending legislation and, with the approval the IndyBar Board of Directors, will monitor progress, when necessary members of the committee and/or board leadership will appear before legislative committees, or contact legislators to provide insight into the perceived implications.
The listing is divided into two categories: Practice of Law (bills/resolutions of general interest to lawyers) and Areas of Law (bills/resolutions in areas of civil, criminal, probate and family law). It is also archived on the Association’s website, www.indybar.org.
The Legislative Committee is chaired by Hon. Heather Welch of the Marion Superior Court.•
