Buchanan: General Assembly kicks off 2023 session

STATEHOUSE (Nov. 22, 2022) – State Sen. Brian Buchanan (R-Lebanon) today gathered with fellow legislators at the Statehouse for Organization Day – the ceremonial start of the 123rd Indiana General Assembly.

Organization Day includes the swearing in of new and returning members of the General Assembly. This day also marks the annual first roll call of all state lawmakers and gives each Senate and House of Representatives caucus the opportunity to organize in preparation for the 2023 legislative session.

During the first session of each General Assembly, lawmakers craft a comprehensive budget to fund government services for the next two fiscal years.

"During the interim, I heard from many people in my local community about issues impacting them," Buchanan said. "In 2023, I expect to work on a variety of fiscal issues, and look forward to working with my colleagues to create our state's next balanced budget and address other concerns facing our state."

As the 2023 session begins, Buchanan encourages residents of Senate District 7 to contact him with any questions or comments they may have by email at or by phone at 800-382-9467.


State Sen. Brian Buchanan (R-Lebanon) represents Senate District 7,

which includes portions of Boone, Clinton, Hendricks and Montgomery counties.
