(STATEHOUSE) Jan. 7, 2009 - Rep. Wes Culver (R-Goshen), along with his House colleagues, opened the 2009 session of the Indiana General Assembly today at the Statehouse. Rep. Culver starts the session with a number of goals that aim to control government spending and maintain high-quality services to Hoosier families.

"The 2009 legislative session will be very important to Hoosiers," said Rep. Culver.  "We must work in a bipartisan fashion to help struggling families during these difficult times."

Rep. Culver joins with his House Republican colleagues in support of Hoosier Families First, their caucus agenda outlined in a recent press conference.  Their aims are short and simple:

  • Taxpayer protection. No tax increases. No gimmicks. Just a lean, common-sense-based budget that keeps state government operating efficiently.
  • Job Creation: Focus on the Future. Indiana has been a leader in the Midwest at attracting new jobs, and we will continue to aggressively seek high-paying, quality jobs for our citizens.  No new general business taxes and no new burdensome regulations.

During the session, Rep. Culver will serve as a member on two House legislative committees - Judiciary and Public Policy.

The Indiana General Assembly is a part-time legislature, meeting on a two-year cycle - three months in even-numbered years and four months in odd-numbered years.
