Catholics are invited to join the Indiana Catholic Action Network

Catholics can make a difference because shaping public policy is the responsibility of every person.

If you want to know what is going on at the Indiana Legislature and how to get involved, become a member of the I-CAN network. To do so, visit the Indiana Catholic Conference Web page at www.indianacc.org and click Join the I-CAN network for details.

The Indiana Catholic Conference also publishes a weekly legislative news brief called the I-CAN Update which summarizes legislation of concern to the Church.

These are also available on the ICC Web page. In addition to the I-CAN Update, archived updates, ICC positions and other background information are also on the ICC Web page.

More detailed information regarding the bills and detailed information about the legislative process are available on the Web at www.state.in.us/legislative/session/calendars.html.

To learn about legislative initiatives proposed by Gov. Mitch Daniels, go to his Web page at www.in.gov/gov/index.htm. The home page for the Indiana General Assembly is www.in.gov/legislative/.

Glenn Tebbe, ICC executive director, provides weekly legislative updates on Indianapolis Catholic radio.

They are broadcast at 11:05 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday mornings on WSPM 89.1 FM following Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein’s weekly radio broadcast.

Indianapolis Catholic Radio also streams on the Internet and can be heard statewide by going to www.catholicradioindy.org and clicking on the “Listen Now” button. †
