The following information is provided as a general guideline for the schedules and deadlines for the 2015 session of the Indiana General Assembly.

The suggested time slots for the two key committees addressing energy and utility issues are as follows:

  • Senate Utilities Committee will meet on Thursday mornings
  • House Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee will meet on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm

Rep. Koch presents HB 1423 to House Utilities Committee_2014-01-27

Rep. Eric Koch (R-Bedford) presents a bill to the House Utilities and Energy Committee during the 2014 session.

In most cases, these committee hearings will be streamed live on the Internet so if you are working in the office on Thursday mornings and/or Wednesday afternoons you may want to tune in and watch. It is definitely an educational experience.

These general time slots for committee hearings are always subject to change and at the sole discretion of the committee chair.
