Military family relief fund

Bills on holcomb’s desk budget

The budget adds hundreds of millions of dollars to education how to get rid of black ants in house naturally spending, though none for teacher salaries, dials back planned increases for the state’s troubled child services agency and ends funding for amtrak’s hoosier state train, which runs from indianapolis to chicago.

The budget includes $14.8 billion in education funding that amounts to a 2.5% increase each of the next two years, which critics say essentially keeps up with inflation. Flanked at a news conference tuesday by the heads of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally various state education groups — but none representing teachers — house speaker brian bosma called the spending plan “historic.”

The house and senate agreed to increase the department of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally child services’ funding by $256 million in 2020 and $246 million in 2021. That’s a significant cut from the additional $286 million that had been proposed to bring its budget how to get rid of black ants in house naturally in line with actual spending.

House enrolled act 1015, one of the largest gaming bills in decades, moves up the date that horse race tracks will be how to get rid of black ants in house naturally allowed to use live table games and increases the number how to get rid of black ants in house naturally and type of facilities a gaming operator can own from how to get rid of black ants in house naturally two casinos to six casinos and racinos.

It also allows spectacle entertainment to move one of its how to get rid of black ants in house naturally two recently purchased gary licenses miles away from the lakefront how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to a more heavily traveled area. In doing so, the casino operator would have to give up its second how to get rid of black ants in house naturally license, which would go to terre haute. The company could later bid against competitors to win it how to get rid of black ants in house naturally back.

But in a decision that was criticized by some republican how to get rid of black ants in house naturally and democratic lawmakers, the legislation would still only require spectacle entertainment to continue how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to pay taxes as if the operator owned two smaller, lower-revenue-producing riverboat casinos, which could result in tens of millions of dollars in how to get rid of black ants in house naturally savings.

Spectacle entertainment had been at the center of a couple how to get rid of black ants in house naturally of controversies this legislative session. The company flew gov. Eric holcomb on a private jet to a pair of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally republican governors association meetings last year, in arizona and colorado, giving the casino owners exclusive access to holcomb.

The senate had set a higher bar. Under its version of the proposal approved in february, the indy eleven would have needed to enter into a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally 25-year agreement with a major league soccer franchise by 2022 how to get rid of black ants in house naturally and front 20 percent of the construction cost for a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally stadium before the team could use any taxpayer money.

Regulating scooters

The 2018 legislative session was dubbed the alcohol session, as lawmakers tackled sunday alcohol sales. While the general public may not be as interested in how to get rid of black ants in house naturally alcohol matters at the statehouse this year, the omnibus alcohol bill house enrolled act 1518 made its how to get rid of black ants in house naturally way to the finish line.

Bottleworks would have to buy one main alcohol license worth how to get rid of black ants in house naturally $50,000 for the entire food hall and lower-price subpermits for each of the vendors in the hall. Without this option, all of the vendors might not have been able to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally sell alcohol, due to the city’s quota on alcohol permits — an option that could have hindered the project’s ability to attract vendors.

Gov. Eric holcomb wanted lawmakers to fully fund the troubled department how to get rid of black ants in house naturally of child services’ request for a $286 million increase that would bring its annual budget to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally $965 million, help ease employee caseloads and allow it to serve children how to get rid of black ants in house naturally better.

House enrolled act 1003 was designed by the house leadership how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to start addressing indiana’s teacher pay problem.

House enrolled act 1008 will let schools apply for grants how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to create new "career ladders" to keep veteran educators in the classroom while advancing professionally. Experienced teachers can take on a leadership position — like mentoring new teachers or training their colleagues in any how to get rid of black ants in house naturally area of personal expertise — that comes with a pay stipend and an incentive to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally stay in the classroom, rather than leaving for administration.

House enrolled act 1004 was supposed to be an omnibus how to get rid of black ants in house naturally bill that translated those recommendations into policy, but it ended up doing little more than restructuring the how to get rid of black ants in house naturally state’s matching grant program for school safety projects — hiring school resource officers or hardening the building — and requiring schools conduct at least one active-shooter drill each year.

At one point in the process, the bill would have allowed schools to access the safety how to get rid of black ants in house naturally grant dollars for mental health services and social emotional learning how to get rid of black ants in house naturally initiatives. That drew the ire of some conservative lobbying groups, though, who were concerned that parents could be left out conversations how to get rid of black ants in house naturally about their child’s mental health.

House bill 1253 was touted as another school safety bill, but it fell short in the final days of session. Originally, it would have allowed schools to use the safety grant how to get rid of black ants in house naturally dollars for firearms training for teachers and other employees but how to get rid of black ants in house naturally was amended to mandate training for anyone who wanted to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally be armed or have access to a gun on school how to get rid of black ants in house naturally grounds.

Lawmakers couldn’t agree on an approach, so the bill died.

Charter schools

House enrolled act 1641 shortens the window that unused buildings how to get rid of black ants in house naturally must be held back for charter schools before a district how to get rid of black ants in house naturally can sell. It also paves the way for indianapolis public schools to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally sell broad ripple high school for redevelopment and a hefty how to get rid of black ants in house naturally price. That privilege comes with strings, though, that give purdue polytechnic high school the option to locate how to get rid of black ants in house naturally on the site. Creationism

Originally, senate enrolled act 373 dealt with a whole host of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally religious issues in schools. It would have allowed schools to require the teaching of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally creationism, obligated all schools to put posters of the american flag how to get rid of black ants in house naturally and the nation’s "in god we trust" motto in all classrooms and mandated the bible be included how to get rid of black ants in house naturally as a text in world religion courses. That provision caught the attention of president donald trump, who tweeted support for "numerous states" with such bills.

Republican leaders had been trying to whip up enough votes how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to pass the legislation last week but failed ahead of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally a deadline to pass bills out of the chamber. Facing grim prospects, the bill’s sponsor, rep. Matt lehman, R-berne, decided not to even call senate bill 613 for a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally vote.

The bill would have allowed payday and subprime lenders to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally charge interest rates on small loans at levels the state how to get rid of black ants in house naturally currently classifies as felony loan sharking. The senate passed the bill after an intense, last-minute lobbying effort from the loan industry.

A competing bill also died. The senate on feb. 26 voted down senate bill 104, which would have capped payday lending rates at 36 percent. Payday lenders in indiana can legally charge interest equivalent to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally 391 percent per year on small, two-week loans.

That bill’s defeat was a big setback for more than 60 how to get rid of black ants in house naturally consumer advocacy groups — including charities, veterans organizations and churches — that see high-interest loans as predatory. They have now set about defeating senate bill 613. Curtis hill impeachment

Four women, including democratic state rep. Mara candelaria reardon, accused hill of inappropriately touching them at an end-of-legislative-session party in march 2018. Hill has denied the allegations and refused to step aside how to get rid of black ants in house naturally amid calls for his resignation.

While the effort once enjoyed broad bipartisan support, democrats in particular grew more concerned that the law would how to get rid of black ants in house naturally be used to disproportionately target minorities, while some legal experts said children that young did not how to get rid of black ants in house naturally have the mental capacity to understand their actions. Removal of light rail ban

Fishers, and to a lesser degree, noblesville, have begun plans to convert the nickel plate rail line how to get rid of black ants in house naturally into a monon-like trail. That line once was envisioned by transit advocates as a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally commuter route to link those cities to downtown indianapolis. Now it seems more likely to be a pathway.

Originally, state sen. Chip perfect, who owns a southeastern indiana ski resort, filed legislation to scrap indiana child labor laws. But he set aside that push amid conflict-of-interest scrutiny that arose from his employment of hundreds of how to get rid of black ants in house naturally minors.

In its original form, the bill would have gotten rid of work permit requirements how to get rid of black ants in house naturally for minors and removed all restrictions on what hours 16- and 17-year-old hoosiers could work. Other protections for minors would have still been present under how to get rid of black ants in house naturally federal law. Conversion therapy

House bill 1147 would have eliminated the 11-member board and transferred its responsibilities to the indiana department how to get rid of black ants in house naturally of education. Rep. Ed delaney, D-indianapolis, introduced the idea last year in an amendment to a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally different bill, but his proposal was not adopted.

For years, good-government advocates have called for legislation to create an independent how to get rid of black ants in house naturally committee that would take over that responsibility. They believe a commission would be less likely to draw how to get rid of black ants in house naturally maps that favor one political party over the other.

Instead, for the second year in a row, the indiana senate passed a bill that would set standards how to get rid of black ants in house naturally lawmakers must consider when redrawing districts for congress and the how to get rid of black ants in house naturally indiana senate and house. Good-government advocates said it was better than nothing. But for the second year, it died in the house without a hearing, and they got nothing. Hospital certificate of need
