Thursday night at the stroke of midnight, speculations became reality when the U.S.-imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods.

Attorney General Curtis Hill says he won’t resign after the governor and other GOP leaders called on him to step down. Instead, Hill wants a new investigation into allegations he groped four women earlier this year.

He calls the allegations “vicious and false,” and says legislative leaders’ inquiry into his conduct is a “travesty.”

New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds only 15 percent of Hoosiers get the recommended amount of weekly physical activity.

Indiana’s Inspector General will investigate sexual misconduct allegations against Attorney General Curtis Hill.

Lori Torres announced Friday her office will look into the accusations after the governor and legislative leaders requested the inquiry.
