2016 Short Session Begins Today!

Good Morning! 

What an exciting day to kick off the 2016 Short Session of the Indiana General Assembly in earnest! It's hard to believe that this is the 6th Session that I've had the privilege of representing my friends and neighbors in House District 21. I love serving the good people of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties in the Indiana House! 

Each year, we begin the first day of Session with a prayer service in the Statehouse Atrium. This is a wonderful, bi-partisan, voluntary opportunity to acknowledge Almighty God and to seek His wisdom and blessing in the affairs of our State. Just as our forefathers gratefully acknowledged Him in the Preamble of our 1851 State Constitution, so too, do we.

Things typically start out slowly the first week. Bills have to be handed down on first reading and assigned to committees by the Speaker before they can be acted upon. I expect we'll see committees begin to hear bills Monday of next week and the process will be in full swing by later next week. This Session promises to be a whirlwind, wrapping up no later than March 15, a mere ten weeks! If a bill is not passed out of committee in the first four weeks, it will be considered dead. Many bills will not be heard (and that is a good thing!).  

2016 is a landmark year for our State as we celebrate Indiana's Bicentennial!  There will be many celebrations across our State and I hope you take time to participate! 

Thanks for reading! If you're interested in following the Legislature closely or are interested in any particular issue, see our website iga.in.gov. There you can watch all of our Sessions and Committee meetings live or on-demand and closely follow action on any piece of Legislation. 

In God we Trust!

2014 Session of the Indiana General Assembly Successfully Completed!

(My wife, Katie, and I celebrating the end of Session!) 

Another Session of the Indiana General Assembly has concluded! Among the achievements of this Session, were SEA 1, which will give local communities more options to reduce taxes and attract businesses and jobs; HEA 1002, which transfers up to $400 million for major road funding, allowing Indiana to be eligible for more than $1.6 billion in additional federal funds; HEA 1003, which addresses the skills gap by providing incentives to employers who partner with education institutions to provide internships; and HEA 1005, which helps reduce government bureaucracy by cutting red tape and eliminating burdensome regulations.

Tim Wesco Files for Reelection in House District 21



“Today I filed my candidacy for the continued privilege of representing the people of House District 21 in Indianapolis. It has been an honor for me to serve every day of Session on the House floor, voting my conscience and the will of my constituents. True to my word, I have supported a strong economy, fiscal responsibility and family values throughout these my first two terms in office. 

“I will continue to represent House District 21 with integrity and honest hard work and I look forward to the opportunity to once again seek out the support of the people.”  

Indiana House District 21 includes Osceola and parts of Penn Township in St. Joe County; parts of Elkhart, Dunlap, the town of Wakarusa, and Baugo, Olive, and Harrison Townships as well as much of Concord Township in Elkhart County. (See map here.)
