Chamber Fighting Job Killers at Statehouse


As the 2009 Indiana legislative session rolls on and more and more Hoosiers find themselves without employment, we’d like to present the list of bills that we’re labelling "job killers." These bills are simply bad for business and employees in the Hoosier State.
