Hey, we have 103 Indiana members currently listed in the Member Locator thread. It appears that our ranks are growing.
Guys, take the time to IM other members in your area, introduce yourselves, and maybe set up small local shoots. It will make for an interesting time and new friendships never hurt either.
This is good information to have in case we ever need to blitz the Indiana Legislature about an unfriendly gun or outdoor sports law. A hundred messages delivered to a committee chairman would be huge.
I intend to spend more time in the State House during the next legislative session so if anyone has legislation they are interested in, please let me know.
How about military retired pay being exempt from state income tax?
Is this pay exempt in any other state? The reason I ask is I doubt Indiana would lead the way if no one else is doing it.
Put this together quickly, but it should be correct.
