Bassler: General Assembly kicks off 2022 session

Sen. Eric Bassler, R-Washington

State Sen. Eric Bassler, R-Washington, gathered with fellow legislators recently at the Statehouse for Organization Day – the ceremonial start of the Indiana General Assembly.

Organization Day marks the annual first roll call of all state lawmakers. This day also provides each Senate and House of Representatives caucus with the opportunity to gather before session officially reconvenes in January. By state law, the 2022 session will conclude on or before March 14.

“I was fortunate to serve on several summer study committees this year that looked into a number of issues, including higher education funding, fiscal policy and pension management," Bassler said. "I'm looking forward to working on legislation this session that makes use of the research and testimony we gathered in these and other committees."

As the 2022 session gets underway, Bassler encourages residents of Senate District 39 to contact him with any questions or comments they may have. Bassler can be reached via email at or by phone at (800) 382-9467.
