STATEHOUSE — State Sen. Stacey Donato (R-Logansport) today gathered with fellow legislators at the Statehouse for Organization Day – the ceremonial start of the 122nd Indiana General Assembly.

Organization Day includes the swearing in of new and returning members of the General Assembly, including Donato, who take the formal oath of office to begin a new Senate term. This day also marks the annual first roll call of all state lawmakers and gives each Senate and House of Representatives caucus the opportunity to organize in preparation for the 2021 legislative session.

During the first session of each General Assembly, lawmakers craft a comprehensive budget to fund government services for the next two fiscal years.

“I am honored to be sworn in to serve my first full term as the state senator for District 18,” Donato said. “Over the next four years, I look forward to working with my peers in the Senate and House of Representatives to address our state’s most pressing issues and overcome the negative impacts of COVID-19.”

As the 2021 session gets underway, Donato encourages residents of Senate District 18 to contact her with any questions or comments they may have by email at Senator.Donato@iga.in.gov or by phone at 800-382-9467.
