Guide to the 2020 Legislative Session

  Welcome to the 13th edition of FV Indiana's Guide to the Legislative Session. This year brings a "short session" that will begin on January 6, 2020, and is expected to last through March 14, 2020. This session will provide many opportunities for families to be involved, share your experience, and build relationships with legislators that will impact current and future decisions.
