La PORTE — From legislation requiring drivers to stay off their cell phones while driving to a bill insulating school districts from the results of the state’s controversial standardized test, the Indiana General Assembly has a hefty docket ahead of it halfway into its current session.

On Friday, State Reps. Jim Pressel, R-Rolling Prairie, and Pat Boy, D-Michigan City, updated the community on the affairs currently gripping the state capitol during Friday’s Third House Session, which took place at Purdue University Northwest in Westville. The lawmakers discussed the pieces of legislation they’ve presented and gave their thoughts on other significant bills working their way through Indianapolis this session, which began Jan. 6.
