Indiana Legislative Successes this Year

 Many thanks to all the Legionnaires that helped get this legislation passed!

Senate Bill 115 Signing

Signing of Senate Bill 115 with Governor Pence

New laws reinforcing Indiana’s commitment to members of the armed forces and our veterans:

  • SEA 177 – Allows for veterans returning from duty out of state or overseas to qualify for in-state tuition at Indiana’s public colleges and universities.
  • SEA 115 – Creates the “combat to college” program, which will provide veterans attending state colleges and universities with centralized services specific to their needs.
  • SEA 564 – Expands state contracting opportunities for veteran-owned businesses.
  • SEA 290 – Gives those who have been medically trained in the military an easier transition into emergency medical professions after they return to civilian life.
