Indiana House Bill 1479 prohibits state enforcement of some provisions of Obamacare, effectively gutting it in practice. It also offers some relief to citizens such as tax rebates to offset its cost impacts. Learn more about this bill here.

STATUS: Referred to the Ways and Means Committee where it will need to pass by majority vote before it can be considered by the full House.

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. If you live in Indiana, take these actions today.

1. Call the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Committee.Be strong, but respectful. Urge them to support HB1479 and move the bill forward in their committee. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why.

A phone call holds as much as 10x the impact of an email.

Timothy Brown Chair, 317-232-9651, 800-382-9841
Robert Cherry Vice Chair, 317-232-9651, 800-382-9841

2. Call all the other members of the Committee.  Again, be strong but respectful. Ask them each for a YES vote on HB1479. If they say they’re opposed, ask them why. If they’re undecided or will not commit to a YES vote, let them know you will be following up in a few days after they have a chance to consider it.

Again, make sure to contact them with a phone call rather than an email.
