GLI is a regional chamber that crosses state lines. We will work together with One Southern Indiana to collaborate and work on initiatives that benefit both Indiana and Kentucky.
Indiana Legislative Session
GLI is tracking legislation in Indianapolis that could impact our region. Links to those bills can be found here:
HB 1211 will establish the IN-KY transborder groundwater authority to study ownership rights in the groundwater resources shared by our two states.
HB 1286 will provide that if a regional development authority is established after June 30, 2017, the establishing ordinances must specify if the authority has the power of eminent domain, does not have the power of eminent domain, or has the authority per the approval of the municipality’s legislative body.
While not legislative, we have identified tuition reciprocity as a goal we can work together to accomplish. GLI supports a prompt renewal of the Kentucky/Indiana Tuition Reciprocity Agreement. This is not a measure that should be postponed. It should not occur at the 11th hour. Discussions should begin now and we will work to build communication between states.
