Rep. Kubacki listens intently to debate in the House Chambers.

 

Welcome!

I feel honored to serve and represent the citizens of Kosciusko and Elkhart Counties. My passion and optimism for the future of District 22 is unwavering as I am determined to make a difference throughout my term. The people of District 22 are why I am here, and I look to represent you well.

I look forward to continuing to be a spokeswoman for our district at the Statehouse. I'm focused on job creation, educational opportunities and a balanced budget this session as we look to keep Indiana on the right track.

Our goal is to make success possible for every Hoosier, and it starts with having a great education. We will work to strengthen our education system and increase job opportunities, so that Hoosiers can overcome any obstacle that life may throw at us as we work towards building a brighter future.

Hearing your thoughts, questions and concerns are an integral part of representing you to the fullest extent. I encourage you to contact me by email or by phone.

 

Sincerely,

Rebecca Kubacki
State Representative
House District 22

 

2014 Legislative Update:

Here are some of the bills I am working on. If you would like to follow a bill's progress online, please visit https://iga.in.gov/legislative/2014/bills/, and refer to the bill number.

HB 1222: Adoption committee and tax credit

  • If enacted, the bill would provide an adjusted gross income tax credit for individuals that qualify for the federal adoption credit
  • Qualifying Hoosiers would be eligible for a state tax credit equal to 10 percent of the qualifying federal adoption credit amount claimed on their federal income tax return starting in 2015
  • Would establish the Interim Committee on Adoption, which would research adoption programs in other states and within the state, make recommendations for improving adoption programs in Indiana and report their findings to the governor and the Department of Child Services
  • The committee, consisting of 9 members appointed by the governor, would review the relationships between state agencies and private, faith-based and community organizations in other states across the nation to determine potential ways for Indiana to improve its adoption programs.

HB 1014: Dissolution in cases of domestic violence

On any given day in our state, over 1,000 domestic violence victims and their children find refuge in our state’s emergency shelters and transitional housing programs.
  • Currently, Indiana law prohibits a court from conducting a final hearing earlier than 60 days after a petition for divorce. This bill will help courts act to dissolve marriages in which one of the spouses is a victim of domestic violence.
  • Allows a court in a dissolution of marriage case to: (1) conduct a final hearing; or (2) enter a summary dissolution decree; at any time after a petition or counter petition for dissolution has been filed if a party to the action has been convicted of a crime of domestic violence against the other party or against any child living in the same household as a party.
