INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- It appears a crackdown is coming at the Statehouse. House Speaker Brian Bosma says he's tiring of the Democratic walk out.

Starting Monday, there will be tougher measures to penalize the absent minority.

Fines against Democrats have increased from $250 to $350 a day. Bosma will seek to garnish Democrats' salaries from their real world jobs if necessary to collect the money.
