Entry Description
STATEHOUSE – State Representative Mike Karickhoff (R-Kokomo) is authoring five bills for the 2014 legislative session and is a co-author on five more.

“My focus continues to be on giving local communities the power and flexibility to handle issues that come up in local neighborhoods and throughout the county. Each level of government has a role to play in keeping government efficient and effective,” said Rep. Karickhoff.
Below is a list and brief description of the House Bills (HB) Rep. Karickhoff is authoring and co-authoring.

HB 1079 – Allows school corporations that adopted a policy not to accept transfer students after June 30, 2013 to enroll a student who has a member of the same household who was a transfer student within the school corporation during the 2012-13 school year. HB 1079 passed out of the House today with a unanimous vote and will now move to the Senate for further discussion.
HB 1080 –Authorizes the operator of a motorcycle, motor scooter or bicycle approaching an intersection controlled by a stoplight to proceed through the intersection on a steady red signal as if it is a four way stop after they’ve come to a complete stop and waited at least two minutes.
