March 15th: Here’s what happened this week at the Indiana Statehouse

As the eleventh full week of the 2019 legislative session comes to an end, Women4Change continues to be YOUR eyes and ears in the Indiana Statehouse.

A big thank you to our members for continuing to our work at the Statehouse. We had Women4Change members sending a clear message to our lawmakers through the following activity:

  1. Thank you to those who continue to write letters on behalf of comprehensive and inclusive hate crimes legislation. You can read more about this effort here.

Next week:

  1. HB 1211 ('Abortion matters') is scheduled for a hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, 27 Mar 2019 from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM in the Senate Chamber.

  2. HB 1007 ('Perinatal care') is scheduled for a hearing by the Senate Health and Provider Services Committee on Wednesday, 20 Mar 2019 from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM in State House Room 431.
