INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana House on Thursday backed off a plan to require at least one person in every public school including charter schools carry a firearm at all times.
Talk about a loaded question. State Rep. Hal Slager's question is this: Do you believe Indiana, like other states, should implement random drug testing as a requirement to receiving state-funded welfare benefits?
Testing welfare recipients for drug use is a popular cause, but the dollars and cents don't add up.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana House voted 78-17 Monday to spend $2.7 million next year on a drug testing program for some welfare recipients that may save the state $1.5 million in denied benefits.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mitch Daniels has signed a law explicitly authorizing Hoosiers to physically resist police if officers are breaking the law.
INDIANAPOLIS | Despite a determined effort by state Rep. Linda Lawson, D-Hammond, to kill it, legislation intended to clarify Hoosier self-defense rights following a controversial Indiana Supreme Court decision was approved Friday by the Republican-controlled General Assembly.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana House agreed to add a right to resist police to the state's self-defense law Thursday in response to a May 2011 Supreme Court ruling that said Hoosiers never can resist police.
INDIANAPOLIS | Legislation intended to ensure drinkers get medical attention when they drink too much was approved 95-0 by the Republican-controlled Indiana House Tuesday.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana House voted 73-23 Tuesday to spend up to $1.5 million for a two-year pilot program drug testing welfare recipients, despite projected savings of only $43,000.
INDIANAPOLIS | State lawmakers could lose their Statehouse parking spot, office space, electronic devices and staff if they fail a drug test under a modification made Monday to House Bill 1007.
INDIANAPOLIS | A proposed pilot program to drug-test Indiana welfare recipients in three counties was changed Friday to also require mandatory drug and alcohol tests for members of the General Assembly.
