INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - House Minority Leader, Patrick Bauer returned to Indianapolis to meet with House Speaker Brian Bosma.

And apparently the stalemate will continue after no deal was reached.

Keeping the door open to Bosma's office, Bauer accused Bosma of demonizing teachers, while Bosma accused Bauer of conducting a monologue for the press.

Bosma says he simply wants to know what bills have to be pulled for the Democrats to come back to work.

Bauer says, “I want to soften these blows against working people and teachers and schools and see if I can get it done,". "If I can't, then we'll have to see if time can heal the situation."

Democrats originally expressed concern about 11 bills that were pending in the GOP-controlled House that they considered anti-union and anti-education.

As a result of the meeting Bauer trimmed that list to five.
