INDIANAPOLIS — Of the 1,154 bills filed in the 2023 Indiana General Assembly, lawmakers approved 252 of those. In several bills, Republicans continued their tirade against equality and equity with legislation that attacked Indiana residents’ freedom and economic security. See below for this session’s round up.
Statement from Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Mike Schmuhl regarding harmful INGOP legislation:
“While we are incredibly proud of what Democrats have been able to accomplish this past session, Hoosiers should be frustrated with the constant stream of controversial policies passed by the Republican supermajority. Most Hoosiers want a fairer and more balanced Indiana that works for everyone — not the powerful few. Hoosier Democrats will never stop standing up for all Hoosiers,” Schmuhl said.
“Hoosier Democrats will keep fighting for common sense principles that move our state in a positive direction, like local education funding, protecting the right to choose, promoting liberty for women and LBGT Hoosiers, and increasing healthcare access for all — including our state’s most vulnerable citizens.”
