Frye: New health benefit for Indiana Farm Bureau members

Posted by: Randy Spieth  | Friday, March 27, 2020

With agriculture contributing an estimated $31.2 billion to Indiana's economy each year, it's important steps are taken to keep Hoosier farmers working in the industry. Since the majority of local farmers are sole proprietors and operators, an obstacle they face is accessing affordable health care options. Through a new law I supported, non-profit agriculture agencies like the Indiana Farm Bureau will be able to provide health plans to its members, helping many local farmers qualify for affordable health benefits.

Bacon: Head up, phone down it's the law

Friday, March 27, 2020

Many Hoosiers use technology more than ever before to stay connected to family, friends and work, but our devices can be deadly distractions on the road. In the last year alone, the Indiana State Police conservatively estimated 48 Hoosiers were killed and 868 others had standalone crashes caused by cellphone distractions. To save lives, Indiana recently joined 21 other states in passing a hands-free driving law, and it's up to all of us to change our habits and keep our focus on the road.

Speaker Huston says state, local budgets face new reality due to COVID-19

Posted by: Erin Wittern  | Thursday, March 26, 2020

STATEHOUSE (March 26, 2020) – “The federal emergency relief package will help so many Americans and job creators weather this unprecedented storm. Expanding and increasing jobless benefits will have an immediate impact on those who have suddenly found themselves, perhaps for the first time, out of work and anxious about their future. I'm encouraged by the federal government's aggressive and swift response, and I hope this relief is expedited directly to those who need it most.

"The federal legislation also provides direct financial assistance to the state and local governments to assist with the COVID-19 response, but this funding may not fill all of the gaps created by a dramatic decline in state and local tax revenues. Our fiscal prudence and strong reserves serve as a critical buffer to ensure the continuation of essential state government services, but it's also clear that all levels of government must prepare now to tighten their belts."

Posted by: Allison Vanatsky  | Friday, March 20, 2020

STATEHOUSE (March 20, 2020) – “It is clear the current health crisis demands decisive action, and Governor Holcomb's decision to postpone the primary election by one month is the right move for our state. Some county clerk’s offices are currently closed to mitigate person-to-person contact, and are not in condition to administer an election under these circumstances. Taking this additional time to prepare for our primary election will not only help Hoosiers stay healthy and avoid spreading the virus, but also ensure everyone who can vote has a chance to perform their civic duty.”
