Bill Watch 2016

We Won on HB 1082!

Governor Pence, for the first time in his tenure as Governor, vetoed an anti-environmental bill.   This bill, HB 1082 — the most damaging of all anti-environmental legislation introduced this session — would have made it much more difficult for Indiana’s taxpayer-funded environmental experts to do their job.   Our appreciation for the 20 statewide and regional organizations that stood united in opposing this bill.   Thank you for being an active citizen and for bettering our state this last legislative session!    (Note: this page was updated on April 4th.)
