This day also marks the annual first roll call of all state lawmakers and gives each Senate and House of Representatives caucus the opportunity to organize in preparation for the 2023 legislative session.

 

During the first session of each General Assembly, lawmakers craft a comprehensive budget to fund government services for the next two fiscal years.

 

“With the 2023 legislative session underway, I look forward to using all the information gathered this interim to continue my service to Hoosiers,” Crider said. “My fellow legislators and I will be working to create a balanced budget, and I will be working on ways we can improve our state's mental health infrastructure.”
