Legislative studies often precede tough action

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers have only a few more days before they wrap up the 2014 legislative session. But that doesn’t mean they’re totally done for the year.

A handful of top issues being debated this session are on their way to “summer study,” as the Statehouse lingo goes. Such studies often motivate lawmakers to take action on tough issues that would otherwise stagnate.

It took a study last summer of religious daycare operations for lawmakers to draw close this year on new rules.

Republican Gov. Mike Pence could have the most to gain or lose. Lawmakers are set to review his call for business tax cuts and preschool vouchers over the summer.

The session is set to end no later than Friday. Then come months of pondering.
