Indiana Attorney General Hill asks for $5M budget increase

Embattled Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill wants lawmakers to increase his budget by about $5 million, despite previously drawing their ire for spending $300,000 on office renovations and a van with his name emblazoned on the side.

Hill did not appear in person Monday to request the increase from the State Budget Committee, which is gathering input before lawmakers write a new two-year budget.

Instead, the Republican sent two of his deputies. Other top officeholders, including Indiana's secretary of state, auditor and treasurer, made their requests in person.

GOP legislative leaders and Gov. Eric Holcomb called on Hill to resign last summer after he was accused of drunkenly groping a lawmaker and two legislative staffers at a bar.

He denied the allegations and said he will not resign.
