Indiana House Democrats are ending their boycott.

“I will announce that I’ve been informed by Representative Bauer that the Democratic caucus does intend to return this afternoon and conduct business,” Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said Tuesday afternoon.

Democrats fled to Urbana, Illinois on February 22nd to protest the Republican legislative agenda, particularly bills dealing with labor and education issues.

Bosma said the House would re-convene at 5pm.
