Indiana has the second-highest percentage in the nation of children who have a parent who’s been incarcerated. A new study shows this can have long lasting effects on a child’s wellness.

According to the National Survey of Children’s Health, 11-percent of Hoosier children have a parent who has been incarcerated.  A new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation highlights the impact that time behind bars has on children.

Associate Professor at IU School of Medicine and Riley Hospital for Children Pediatric Dr. Matthew Aalsma, says the report is a valuable tool.

While Hillary Clinton campaigned in Northern Indiana Tuesday, her husband Bill Clinton spoke at an event in Indianapolis.

The former Democratic U.S. President says Hillary Clinton has the most realistic plan to fix the country’s economic problems.

His speech focused on income inequality, student debt and terrorism.

In an apparent appeal to supporters of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, Clinton says Hillary Clinton’s economic plan involves giving companies a 15 percent tax credit if they share their profits fairly.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made two stops in northern Indiana Tuesday, her first appearances in the state ahead of next week's primary election on May 3. 

Clinton focused on middle class jobs and wages.

At Munster Steel in Hammond, she told a small group of workers and invited guests that revitalizing the manufacturing sector is one of the election’s most important issues.

"I have a plan to invest $10 billion to bring unions, workers, businesses, universities and the government together to create new manufacturing jobs," she says.
