Maybe if I take the trouble to write it down, I should actually look at it once in awhile! icon_redface.gif


Okay, NOW you sound like me! lol Yes, I'm getting better at writing things down, esp. on the calendar - I just have to try to remember what I read on the calendar! icon_confused.gif

They updated the bill status. It is now listed as an "engrossed bill". I had to google that and here is the definition...

"The official copy of a bill or joint resolution passed by the Senate and certified by the Secretary of the Senate."

So I would assume the bill has passed and will now go to Mitch Daniels to sign or veto.


Here is the link to the official bill. It will go into law July 1, 2009 if not vetoed by Daniels.

Now if I could just make heads or tails of the bill. icon_cry.gif

Thread Starter 
Even tho' I sent the email last week, my senator and the minority leader of the house were not really prepared or versed in the bill. They asked me to send them an email. I said, "I sent you one last week." He said, "Please send me another." I also told him that I understand he gets hundreds of emails a day .....

I had print outs of the bill and both amendments with me, which I gave to my senator to take with him. Gave him my card and he said, "Oh I remember this card!" I said, 'Well, take more and pass them along!" (guys ... here's the lesson in having a non black-n-white card, one that really stands out! thumbs_up.gif )

I was very complimented after the meeting when two attorneys approached me to compliment the detailed questions and "..... it's nice to see someone so prepared at these meetings!" Quite a few chamber members were complimentary, also. So I hope that means, even tho' I didn't really get any answers, that it showed I was serious about my questions and about this bill.

Maryj, I do not think "engrossed" means the bill has passed. http://www.ask.com/bar?q=what+does+it+mean+when+a+bill+is+%22engrossed%22%3F&page=1&qsrc=0&ab=0&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.blurtit.com%2Fq651752.html A bill has to go thru the senate/house a number of times. You may have heard the terms "second reading", "third reading" or "final reading". A bill never gets passed in committee and becomes law without going thru another vote in the senate and then going thru the 2nd and 3rd readings. Sometimes they will waived 2nd and 3rd readings, but not always. I have a personal friend who has been a senator for over 20 years and he has told me that he has let some of his own bills die by never bringing them up for 2nd or final reading.

So .... no real news to report this morning. But I'll re-send my email to him as soon as I'm done here.

indydebi- you are my hero! looking out for the little guy, even though you already have a licensed business! i would so love to turn my obsession into a business, but right now we can't financially do it. if this were to get passed and include home bakers i couldn't even tell you what that would do for me and so many others i can imagine!

Thanks, Indy, for the time and effort you put into the last two mornings (make-up and all!!). Are we home bakers still in the bill?? I can't understand the mumbo jumbo either!!!
post #82 of 150
Thank you Debi for going to that effort! I also have a serious case of CRS (Can't Remember *stuff*)

Even though it really wont apply to me until I get much better, I wrote my state rep asking for an explanation. Better to do the leg work now! After wading through, I am afraid that it only addresses farmers markets and that the lingo leaves out selling from home now. Of course, I have been known to miss something!

Happy to help you home bakers if anyone needs me to make some contacts!

Thank you for all you are doing to keep us updated on this indydebi. I just wrote my state rep for the first time ever. Gosh I feel like a big girl now! Just to ask for some clarification on the matter and to ask that he try to get us back in if in fact we are now excluded. If I get any response I will keep you all updated.

Thank you Indydebbi for all the trouble and for trying to make sense of all this mambo jambo! It's hard to understand... icon_cry.gif

Thank you also anellos for offering to help with contacts.

I'm curious though, do you mean contact here in Indiana? I live in the northeast corner, closer to Fort Wayne. How would that work?

Sorry... I'm a little slow. icon_lol.gif

My prayers this weekend will be for this bill to turn into realilty, for all of us home bakers.

Happy Easter everyone!!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

The bill says to sell "from flea markets, farmers markets and from the home."

Indydebi you are right. It looks like the bill is scheduled for second reading on the 13th.


Jewelsb with all the amendments it does look like we've been written out.
post #89 of 150
Bill is now scheduled for 3rd reading tomorrow. Don't know if I should be excited or depressed. icon_rolleyes.gif
