Campbell successfully amends public notice legislation
INDIANAPOLIS – State Rep. Chris Campbell (D-West Lafayette) successfully amended public notice legislation last week to ensure Hoosiers are adequately and punctually informed. With the adoption of Campbell's Amendment #2 and Amendment #3, Senate Bill 332 would require entities to publish notices in newspapers first, and then allow for subsequent posts to be published on a government website. Both amendments were adopted into the legislation, and Senate Bill 332 passed the Indiana House of Representatives 93-0.
“Last week's amendments attempted to ensure that no Hoosier gets left behind as this critical information moves online,” Campbell said. “While utilizing existing technology is important for public notices, this legislative body needs to consider folks that could get left behind due to lack of access or technology education.
“I am pleased that my colleagues in the House adopted the language of my amendments, and am committed to ensuring information distributing includes all Hoosiers.”
Campbell has been assigned as a conferee for upcoming proceedings on the legislation.
