INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana General Assembly will kick off its 2014
session later than expected after a snowstorm and sub-zero temperatures
froze much of Indiana.
The House and Senate both plan to hold their first meeting Tuesday
afternoon. Legislative leaders canceled their planned Monday start after a
winter storm walloped Indiana. Republican Gov. Mike Pence closed much of
state government Monday while state emergency staff worked to help
residents and clear roads.
Senate committees had planned to start work Tuesday morning, but a Senate
Republican spokeswoman said lawmakers were still deciding early Monday
afternoon when to hold committee meetings.
