Statehouse Report

The Aim Statehouse Report details the law passed during the previous legislative session that affect Hoosier cities and towns.

While many were ready to pivot to other important matters, the COVID-19 public health emergency remained a priority for lawmakers during the 2022 legislative session. The key priorities of the General Assembly focused primarily on what to do about the exceptionally large state budget surplus that triggered the automatic taxpayer refund and whether tax cuts were warranted as a result. Education issues were also center stage at the General Assembly, with the focus being on school corporation curriculum, procedures, and governance.

 In this Statehouse Report, you will find the collection of new laws that have municipal importance or impact sorted by category. The categories are outlined on the table of contents page. Some bills will appear multiple times because they fall under multiple categories. Most of the laws go into effect on July 1, 2022. However, some laws have alternate effective dates, including retroactivity and upon passage. To view the legislation showing the effective dates, click on the link with the bill number and title. This will take you to information for that bill on the Indiana General Assembly’s website.

 We hope you will find the 2022 Statehouse Report to be a useful tool in learning about the multitude of new laws that were adopted this year. As always, if you have questions about any piece of legislation or current law, contact a member of the Aim legislative team or Aim legal counsel for assistance. 

 We appreciate your input throughout the session and thank you for keeping your legislators informed about municipal matters that are important to you and your community!
