STATEHOUSE – State Representative Dave Ober (R-Albion) joined fellow lawmakers today for the first official day of the 2014 legislative session.
Known as Organization Day, this is Speaker of the House Brian Bosma’s opportunity to share his goals and expectations for the upcoming session. This mostly ceremonial event is the first day lawmakers are able to file bills. Each representative can file up to five bills, and they must all be submitted by the fourth day of session.
“Encouraging policies that foster economic development, job creation, limited government and enhanced educational opportunities for Hoosiers will be my focus this session,” said Rep. Ober. “There will be many important issues brought to the table, and I know that they will all be addressed with the due diligence they deserve.”
Session will begin to convene regularly at the start of January and will run through the end of March. To get updates on the Indiana General Assembly and to watch session live, visit www.in.gov/legislative.
“I look forward to seeing the progress we make for Indiana over the course of the next four months,” Rep. Ober said. “Each session is a new opportunity for the Legislature to continue moving our state forward on the path of success. We’re already ahead of the curve in many ways, and I have no doubt that we will continue to be the best place in the Midwest to live, work and raise a family.”
Rep. Ober represents all of Noble County and portion of Allen, Elkhart, LaGrange and Whitley counties.
