Zay: General Assembly kicks off 2021 session

STATEHOUSE (Nov. 17, 2020) — State Sen. Andy Zay (R-Huntington) today gathered with fellow legislators at the Statehouse for Organization Day — the ceremonial start of the 122nd 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 2021 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.

Zay was also announced as the new chair of the Senate Committee on Insurance and Financial Institutions.

"I am honored to be named chair of the Senate Committee on Insurance and Financial Institutions," Zay said. "While this session may look a bit different from previous years, we will work diligently on tackling the issues caused by the pandemic and create an honestly balanced two-year budget. I look forward to passing laws that improve the lives of Hoosiers and get Main Street moving again."

As the 2021 session begins, Zay encourages residents of Senate District 17 to contact him with any questions or comments they may have by email at or by phone at 800-382-9467.
