Weather delays start of Indiana legislature

– Bitterly cold temperatures are keeping the Indiana General Assembly from getting to work.

The Indiana House and Senate were scheduled to begin the 2014 legislative session on Monday, but have postponed the start because the National Weather Service is predicting Indianapolis could see wind chills of up to 40 below zero through Tuesday.
