(STATEHOUSE) - The general assembly has concluded its work for the year with a 15-hour final-day marathon.

A session which began with a month long battle over Right-To-Work ended with a flurry, as legislators passed a smoking ban, abolished the inheritance tax, and set aside more money for full-day kindergarten and state fair stage collapse victims.

Senate President Pro Tem David Long says it was like two separate sessions, with the second one "calmer" than the Right-To-Work-dominated first half.

House Minority Leader Patrick Bauer predicts anger over Right-To-Work will let democrats recapture the majority in November.

Governor Daniels issued a statement thanking legislators for an "extraordinarily productive" session.
