Update: Indiana House Bill 1079 (Access To Veterans Records)

On March 30, the Indiana Senate's Local Government Committee deadlocked on House Bill 1079, the bill that would permit public access to veterans' discharge records once the Social Security numbers are removed.

The bill has the support of the committee's chair, Senator Connie Lawson (Hendricks & Putnam counties), and she intends to bring it before the committee when they meet again next week. If HB 1079 does not pass the committee then, it is unlikely it will survive this legislative session.

Please e-mail the committee members before next week's meeting and let them know the importance of this bill:

Phil Boots (Boone, Clinton, Fountain, Hendricks, Montgomery & Warren counties) -

Jean D. Breaux (Marion County) -

Doug Eckerty (Delaware & Madison counties) -

Beverly J. Gard (Hamilton, Hancock & Henry counties) -

Travis Holdman (Adams, Allen, Blackford, Grant & Wells counties) -

Lindel Hume (Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Martin, Orange & Pike counties) -

Jim Smith (Clark, Jackson, Jefferson, Jennings, Scott, Switzerland & Washington counties) -

Thomas J. Wyss (Allen County) -

Richard D. Young, Jr. (Crawford, Dubois, Harrison, Perry, Spencer, Warrick & Washington counties) -
