INDIANAPOLIS - Who has the inside track on the remaining cabinet positions in the Trump administration?

And how has the transition team handled the process so far? In the video above, our panel discusses the latest news on the Trump transition and this week's other top stories, including a controversial abortion proposal at the Statehouse.

Although it hasn't been written yet, State Rep. Curt Nisly said he plans to file the "Protection at Conception" bill in the upcoming legislative session. It would make all abortions in Indiana a crime.

“My goal is to treat the death of an unborn child like you would any other human being," said Rep. Nisly. "As an elected official, I will continue to support pro-life policies seeking to preserve the dignity of all human life and provide a voice for the voiceless."

Legal experts said such a ban would be found unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade, but pro-life groups hope to have a chance if President-Elect Donald Trump makes changes to the Supreme Court by appointing pro-life Justices.
