We need as many calls as possible. This will be very interesting.
They can do virtually ANYTHING to this bill in conference committee.
We must ensure they know we are going to take action.
If you prefer to email here are all the addresses.
Senator.Charbonneau@iga.in.gov, email@example.com, Senator.Garten@iga.in.gov, Senator.Busch@iga.in.gov, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Why should we make calls?
Anything goes in conference committee. Legislators actually call it the "wild west" because you never know what is going to happen.
This bill could be drastically changed for the worse, and we need to make our voices heard once again.
We must rally and continue to pressure them.
In my experience I don’t think a lot of activism happens during conference committee and this may be pretty shocking. It is a pivotal time and by us showing large numbers in this crucial committee it will only validate the fact that HOOSIERS ARE WATCHING.
Legislators should know that if we are watching and taking action now, they can certainly expect it come time for the 2024 primaries.
H4ML does not endorse, support, or oppose any candidate, however we will continue report on the issue and the shortcomings of the state legislators. It will then be the constituents who drive this home and really create accountability.
We hope you will help us do this by becoming a WATCHDOG.
What is conference committee?
Again, conference committee is called the “wild west” because anything is possible. Bills only come to conference committee when a bill passes through the chambers (house & senate) and both chambers do not agree on the amended language.
After the bill is changed in the second chamber the author will either “concur” or in this case they will “dissent” or disagree with the changes. The originating chamber will then vote and “adopt” the “dissent.” Once that occurs the “Conferees” and “Advisors” will be appointed from both chambers representing both the democratic and republican parties.
A meeting date will be set and the “Conferees” & “Advisors” will work to change the bill and come up with a “conference committee report.” Once the changes are made it will go back to both chambers and they will vote to adopt the “conference committee report.” There is NOT an opportunity for any more changes, it is simply a yes or no vote.
That means YOUR legislators will be voting on this bill again and could benefit from your phone calls with the same message as above.
What is amendment #9?
Amendment #9 is a no nonsense amendment that would create transparency and require the IDOH to provide information to the public about the rules, metrics, and an opt out procedure for participation in the additional funding, 30 days prior to the counties vote to accept funding.
The amendment also requires a renewal vote every two years by the county executive.
