Crider: General Assembly kicks off 2023 session

STATEHOUSE (Nov. 22, 2022) — State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) 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.

“With the 2023 legislative session underway, I look forward to using all the information gathered this interim to continue my service to Hoosiers,” Crider said. “My fellow legislators and I will be working to create a balanced budget, and I will be working on ways we can improve our state's mental health infrastructure.”

As the 2023 session begins, Crider encourages residents of Senate District 28 to contact him with any questions or comments they may have by email at or by phone at 800-382-9467.


State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) represents Senate District 28, which includes Hancock County and portions of Shelby and Marion counties.
