Three bills ISPLS is watching at the Statehouse this legislative session saw movement in the past week.


House Bill 1014 sailed through the House and will be heard in the Senate in the second half of the session. For the purposes of the advisory planning law, HB 1014 would require a county surveyor's designee to be a resident of the county to serve on the county plan commission, regardless of if they are a permanent designee or only filling a vacancy or serving as an alternate.


Senate Bill 100 passed out of committee and awaits action by the full chamber. Authored by Blake Doriot, R-Elkhart, SB 100 would allow homeowners to restore/reconstruct nonconforming residential single-family homes within their existing footprint so long as it is only nonconforming as to lot size, setbacks or other dimensional requirements; is habitable as an assessed residential property; and has not been condemned.


And Senate Bill 229 also passed out of committee and is ready for a final vote by the full Senate. If passed, a permit would no longer be required from the Indiana Dept. of Environmental Management for the reconstruction or maintenance of regulated drains for purposes of the law concerning state-regulated wetlands.
