The House Judiciary Committee heard SB 4, the technical corrections bill, sponsored by Rep. Washburne. Author Sen. Bray introduced the bill, which was prepared by the Code Revision Commission. The bill resolves: (1) technical conflicts between differing 2014 amendments to Indiana Code sections; and (2) other technical problems in the Indiana Code, including incorrect statutory references, nonstandard tabulation, and various grammatical problems. The bill also provides that the technical corrections bill may be referred to as the “technical corrections bill of the 2015 general assembly” and specifies that this phrase may be used in the lead-in line of SECTIONS of another bill to identify the provisions added, amended, or repealed by the technical corrections bill that are also amended or repealed in the other bill. The bill provides the publisher of the Indiana Code with guidance concerning resolution of amend/repeal conflicts between the technical corrections bill and other bills passed during the 2015 legislative session. Lastly, the bill specifies that if there is a conflict between a provision in the technical corrections bill and a provision being repealed in another bill, the other bill’s repealer is law. The bill passed 8-1.

The House Judiciary Committee heard SB 171 addressing updates of federal law citations, authored by Sen. Bray, sponsored by Rep. Washburne. Sen. Bray explained that this bill updates federal law citations throughout the Indiana Code (the introduced version was prepared by the code revision commission). The bill passed 8-0.

The House Judiciary Committee heard SB 199 concerning substantive problems in the Indiana Code, authored by Sens. Bray, Head, and Randolph and sponsored by Rep. Washburne.  Sen. Bray introduced this bill, which resolves various nontechnical conflicts and problems not suitable for resolution in the annual technical corrections bill, including: (1) statutes that have been both amended and repealed; (2) ambiguous language and references; (3) faulty definitions; and (4) reference to defunct entities. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the code revision commission.)  Two amendments were introduced replacing certain instances of “lieutenant governor” with “director of the Indiana office of energy development” and providing a definition of “small business ombudsman.”  That amendment also replaces instances of “ombudsman” with “small business ombudsman.”  Both amendments were adopted by consent, and the amended bill passed 8-0.
