State of the News

Friday during State of the News we checked in with two reporters from the Indianapolis Star for their take on some of the major recent stories from Indiana.

Reporter Carrie Ritchie brought us a nice summary of Indiana Ex-Secretary of State Charlie White, from it’s beginnings to his sentencing this week.

Then we spoke with Chris Sikich, who covers the Indiana General Assembly, for the latest on the Indiana smoking ban, a bill aimed at cracking down on unpopular specialty license plates, and a stage inspection bill that took shape following the State Fair stage collapse.
