The CDC said last week that it’s safe for vaccinated people to be indoors without masks, prompting a number of communities that have imposed even stricter limits than Indianapolis to eliminate their mandates for face coverings and limits on the number of people who can gather indoors.
What is required is a careful balancing act between encouraging people to get back to work to fill the many available jobs and continuing to offer support to people who can’t find work in their fields.
READI will encourage neighboring counties, cities and towns to partner and apply for grants of up to $50 million per region.
We have supported Holcomb’s handling of the pandemic as well as the larger concept that—as the state’s elected chief executive—it’s the governor’s job to lead the state through an emergency.
Now is the time to fix those imperfections to reduce the hesitancy of any prosecutor considering the law’s use.
We urge lawmakers and Gov. Eric Holcomb’s administration not to fritter away the cash on this and that and the other thing that don’t add up to anything consequential.
The organization seems to be taking gender equity issues seriously. But there appears to be a long way to go toward building a culture of equity, toward making sure it is part of the NCAA’s DNA in all matters.
But we give Gov. Eric Holcomb props for having the forethought to retain power through his extended emergency order to adjust if needed.
We believe this legislation provides the additional authority needed to help keep Hoosiers safe. And it shows how good laws can be crafted when lawmakers are willing to drop their partisan bickering, even if for just a fleeting moment.
Indiana ranks eighth among states in terms of its percentage of vaccine supply administered to patients, according to data tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and reported by Becker’s Hospital Review.
Senate Bill 373 would create a state-sponsored carbon market in Indiana that would help pay for efforts to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that get trapped in Earth’s atmosphere.
Dismissing affordable housing as an issue is a mistake if the affluent suburbs north of Indianapolis—and the businesses that are located in them—want to continue growing at breakneck speed.
We believe in local control. We expect Republicans to believe in local control, too. And so it’s baffling to us that some of the General Assembly’s most conservative lawmakers are leading the efforts to interfere in the way Indianapolis officials govern their city.
At a time when the country—and many of our leaders—appear to be incredibly divided, we appreciate the effort by Sen. Todd Young and his GOP colleagues to craft a COVID-19 relief proposal they could take to the president.
Announcements are easy. Implementation is harder. And implementation that leads to impactful change is harder still.
We’d like to see the governor be more specific about his proposal. He didn’t say, for example, how much money he wants to put behind it.
This is a meaningful piece of legislation that has the support of the Indiana State Police, Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police, Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and Indiana Sheriff’s Association, as well as the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus, the NAACP and the Indiana Black Expo, plus the Indy Chamber and the Indiana Public Defender Council.
It’s disappointing that a Republican-controlled Legislature passed a bill that would preempt local control of something as community based as landlord/tenant regulations. But lawmakers did it and we don’t think they should override the governor’s veto of the bill.
