INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The leader of the Indiana House says he hopes this year’s legislative session will end a few days early.
The General Assembly faces an April 29 deadline to wrap up its business, including adoption of a new two-year state budget.
Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma told members Wednesday that he thought the Legislature might be able to finish its work by the end of next week. That would enable legislators to not have to return to the Statehouse for a final day on April 29, which is a Monday.
Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long both expect legislative sessions all of next week.
Issues that remain undecided include the income tax cut sought by Gov. Mike Pence and a proposed expansion of the private school voucher program.
