2024 Legislative Session

Indiana's 2024 legislative session will run from Jan. 8, 2024 to no later than March 14, 2024.

Republican legislative leaders have said they don’t want 2024 to be about big changes. Instead, they point to last year’s work — on issues including public health, mental health, housing and education — and stress that this year should be about small changes to existing initiatives.

Student reading proficiency, chronic absenteeism in schools and increasing child care access are top priorities for House Republicans this year. Another key bill, HB 1002, would provide protections on college campuses against antisemitism.
