INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - An added provision to the state budget bill in the Senate would make $1,000-a-day fines for boycotting legislators law in the Hoosier state.
This provision comes after the five-week walkout done by House Democrats this session.
The measure allows a court to fine members after a three day absence if too few legislators are present for a quorum.
Democrats were fined a total of $3,000 by Republicans for the recent walkout.
