“While this is still a preliminary investigation with many unanswered questions, our state acted swiftly and appropriately after the recent discovery of 2,246 human remains found as a result of Dr. Klopfer’s disturbing actions. We need to understand how this was able to occur and do everything in our power to ensure that something like this can never happen again. Every human life is precious, and now that we know all these babies came from Indiana, it is my hope we can give them the proper burial and rest they deserve as soon as possible.”
“The state is working to bring the remains of aborted Hoosier children back to Indiana to lay them to rest. I will continue to work with the Indiana Department of Health to ensure that all children, born or unborn, are treated with the respect and dignity that all human life deserves. A preliminary investigation is still ongoing, and anyone who may have further information or connections to this matter needs to contact the Attorney General’s office at 317-234-6663 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
With autumn comes the turning of the leaves, cooler mornings and for many, hunting and trapping season. As Hoosiers make their way through the great outdoors, it’s important they and landowners are aware of Indiana’s purple paint law.

Note to the Press – Please include the following statement from State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne) in your coverage of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana’s ruling regarding hemp. Judy voted for SEA 516, and supports this decision overturning portions of the new law per the court ruling:
STATEHOUSE (Sept. 19, 2019) – “It’s important that hemp is treated like any other regulated agricultural crop in Indiana, just as Congress intended with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Ideally, this ruling will provide guidelines to the rest of the country as states begin developing or amending their current regulatory structures. If Indiana is going to continue to attract substantial investments and jobs into the state like the potential $52 million project in Jeffersonville, our laws and regulations must treat hemp like any other federally regulated agricultural crop. I look forward to ensuring the entire hemp market remains open to Hoosier farmers, small businesses and other entrepreneurs.”

A new popular trend could be dangerous and even life threatening. Nationwide, U.S. health officials announced they are now investigating more than 450 cases of possible vaping-related illnesses in 33 states, including at least six deaths. Here in Indiana, health officials recently confirmed a patient died from a severe lung injury caused by vaping. Everyone needs to be more aware of the potential risks of vaping and what is being done to combat this new health risk.

Indiana spent the last several years taking a critical look at the type of annual assessment students take and how the results are used. This led to eliminating the troubled ISTEP exam and creating ILEARN – Indiana’s Learning Evaluation Assessment Readiness Network.
Each year, House Republicans invite college students and recent graduates across the state to participate in our internship program. Applications recently opened up for the 2020 legislative session, which takes place during the spring semester. This paid internship is a fantastic opportunity for young Hoosiers to learn more about our state government, expand their skillsets and build professional relationships.
Mother Nature dealt our agriculture community a big blow this year, with severe rainy weather keeping farmers out of the fields during their best planting days. It is a loss for families who make a living off the land. These farmers are eligible for some financial help through a natural disaster designation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, because they experienced significant damages and losses due to rain and flooding.
