Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from House Speaker-elect Todd Huston (R-Fishers) in your coverage of today’s State of the Judiciary address by Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush:

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 15, 2020) – “Chief Justice Rush set the right tone today during her address, and we look forward to working with her to ensure we are doing everything we can to support a more fair and efficient court system for all Hoosiers. Jail overcrowding is a serious problem in many of our communities, and we clearly have work to do, from addressing mental health and addiction to supporting the state’s pre-trial diversion program, which gives second chances to low-level offenders.
