POPAI Legislative Update

on 1/8/2016 by Linda Brady, POPAI President

Dear POPAI Members:

It’s hard to believe it is time for the Indiana General Assembly to be in session again!

Here is the link to the bills filed for far….http://iga.in.gov/legislative/2016/bills/

POPAI was asked to provide feedback re: HEA 1006 to Jane Seigel who was scheduled to speak before the House Courts and Criminal Code Committee Wednesday January 6th.  Jane’s testimony and other testimony from criminal justice system stakeholders re: HEA 1006 is archived HERE. http://iga.in.gov/information/archives/2016/video/committee_courts_and_criminal_code_0300/

I believe that this hearing is worthwhile to watch.

Our POPAI lobbyist sends us a listing of filed Bills that may have an impact on probation/POPAI.  Weekly legislative updates from our lobbyist will be posted on the POPAI website, in the Members Only discussion area.  If you have not requested your password to this area, please contact Karen our website administrator to request a login.  INSTRUCTIONS HERE>>> http://gopopai.org/member-discussion/

The POPAI Legislative Committee will be monitoring the bills and contacting legislators with concerns, questions, and suggestions re: any filed bills, especially those already scheduled for committee hearings.

IF you are interested in serving on the POPAI Legislative Committee, please let me know.  We generally do not meet in person; we conference call about important legislative matters and bills of concern.

Looking forward to another hopefully productive legislative session!

Thanks.

Linda Brady, POPAI President
