Indiana will recoup nearly 40-percent of the money it lost this year in a dispute over a 1990s tobacco settlement. 

That’s money used to help fund tobacco cessation programs, community health centers and the state’s children’s health insurance program.

Governor Mike Pence says he'll seek money in next year‘s budget to back up his push for more vocational education in Indiana schools.

Last year, legislators unanimously enacted Pence‘s call for a state career council to coordinate school curricula with the job market, and added regional councils to tailor lesson plans to local needs.

Pence told an Indiana Youth Institute conference of guidance counselors the next step is to make sure those industrial arts and technical education programs are available in Indiana schools.
