Some more news out of the Indiana Statehouse today.

(Where it Stands in the Statehouse) - A bill that would allow Sunday alcohol sales from noon - 8 grocery, convenience, and liquor stores in IN passed out of the senate Monday.

Senate Elections Committee Chairman Greg Walker acknowledged his bill was a "baby step". Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) passed with a vote of 38 to 11. For example, some teenagers are unable to sign their name to validate their driver's license or sign agreements.

This is the furthest this type of bill has made it, despite similar legislation being presented in previous legislative sessions.

The measure now heads to the House.

In 2017, teachers, principals, superintendents and members of governing bodies in the Hoosier State participated in a voluntary study that asked their opinion on teaching cursive writing.

Twenty percent of IN schools now teach cursive. It now moves to the House of Representatives, for hopeful action. It must be passed by the House Education Committee, then passed by the full Indiana House before it would go on to Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb for final approval.
