When both the Indiana House and Senate convene at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Statehouse there will be plenty of talk about money coming out of Indianapolis.
That’s because this is the first year of a two-year budget cycle.
There’s also going to be some measures brought up that could affect Jackson County residents, although local legislators don’t have a lot to say — yet — about bills they plan to put their names behind.
Freshman District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, said he wasn’t prepared to discuss any legislation he might be involved with, with the exception of a measure to restore 0.1 percent to the county’s adjusted gross income tax of 1 percent.
“That is going to be a priority,” said Lucas, whose district spans Jennings County, a majority of Jackson County, including Brownstown, Seymour and Crothersville, and parts of Jefferson County.
