INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana House of Representatives remained frozen in place for the eighth straight day Tuesday, and party leaders offered few indications that a thaw might be negotiated in the near future.

The House adjourned about 3:30 p.m. with most Democrats still at a hotel in Urbana, Ill., where they have been writing amendments to several education and labor bills, and preventing Republicans from moving their agenda.

House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, said Tuesday afternoon that he hadn't talked with Minority Leader B. Patrick Bauer, D-South Bend, at all during the day. Bosma said Republicans are considering fines for those representatives who continue to avoid the Statehouse.
