Pence: I learned about state-run media in Star report

indystar.com — Gov. Mike Pence told a conservative talk show host Wednesday that he didn't learn about his communication staff's written plan to start a state-run news service until he saw it in The Indianapolis Star. Meanwhile, Pence's communications staff, who authored the plan for "Just IN," scrambled to tamp down concerns over the news service Wednesday morning in a strange, sometimes emotional exchange with Indiana Statehouse reporters.

Amid ethics concerns, House energy chairman drops bill

indystar.com — Rep. Eric Koch is backing off his push to prevent local governments from regulating oil and gas drilling after potential conflict-of-interest concerns emerged regarding his personal investments in more than two dozen oil and natural gas companies. Koch, R-Bedford, effectively withdrew the measure on Wednesday, asking House Natural Resources Chairman Sean Eberhart to let it die in committee.
