    With the 2013 session of the Indiana General Assembly having passed its midway point late last week, a pair of state lawmakers on Saturday said final decisions on school-related issues, the state’s biennial budget and other pending legislation will come slowly into focus during the next six weeks.
    State Rep. Matt Lehman, R-Berne, and State Sen. Travis Holdman, R-Markle, held their third and final town hall style meeting of the current session Saturday morning in the office of the Berne Chamber of Commerce. The session attracted only a half-dozen interested constituents.
    This year’s so-called “long” session of the General Assembly requires lawmakers to craft a two-year state budget, and Lehman called that issue the “begin-and-end-all” of legislators’ focus for the remainder of the legislative year.
