    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – People who have epilepsy could be treated with a marijuana-derived oil under a bill approved by the Indiana House. The bill passed the chamber Tuesday on a 98-0 vote.

    Indiana Senate votes down bill to appoint schools chief

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indiana Senate unexpectedly voted down a bill to make the state’s elected schools superintendent a position appointed by the governor. Kokomo Republican state Sen. James Buck’s bill failed Monday on a 23-26 vote.

    Indiana bill would provide students designated moment to pray aloud

    INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana public school students could pray aloud in a public forum under a measure lawmakers are considering. Democratic state Rep. John Bartlett says House Bill 1024 would give students an opportunity to pray in school, but not mandate that they do so. He envisions a designated moment for students to pray aloud according to their individual faith and believes prayer would benefit the student body. Bill opponents question the need for such a proposal, saying students’ freedom of […]
