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.

Because of the delayed start, the bill filing deadline for the General Assembly has been extended by one day to Jan. 13.

Gov. Mike Pence ordered all state government offices closed Monday, but has told essential personnel to report to work to ensure public safety and critical services are available.
