Posted by: Randy Spieth  | Friday, March 6, 2020

Manning Memo: Closing in on the session finish line

Posted by: Andi TenBarge  | Friday, March 6, 2020

We only have one week left in this short legislative session, which means bills are changing by the hour, so we have to do our best to keep up!  Senate Bill 184, the bill I am sponsoring to allow Indiana Farm Bureau to offer health benefit coverage to its members, passed the House with a vote of 93-2. I believe this new and innovative health coverage plan option for farm bureau members has the potential to be one of the most impactful items we pass this session. It will allow more health care access at an affordable cost for those who participate.
