The Affordable Care Act, ACA, is back in the spotlight after the U.S. Department of Justice said it will not defend parts of the law including pre-existing condition coverage.  In Indiana, opposition to the proposed changes is growing.

National pharmacy chain CVS announced Thursday it will install drug disposal boxes at 49 of its stores around Indiana.

The units will allow Hoosiers to get rid of unneeded and unused prescription drugs.

The state of Indiana filed a lawsuit Monday to allow it to collect sales tax from online sellers who don’t have a presence in Indiana.

New state legislation that prompted the lawsuit means the state could collect those taxes if the courts rule in its favor.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1992 that online retailers don’t have to collect and remit sales tax if they have no physical connection to the state.

The man convicted of murdering Indiana University student Hannah Wilson in 2015 has filed a notice asking the Indiana Court of Appeals to review his trial.

The appeal was filed on the same day Daniel Messel was formally charged with attempted rape in a 2012 case.

A judge sentenced him to 80 years in prison for Wilson's murder, but Messel is appealing both the conviction and the sentence.

A panel of federal judges heard arguments Wednesday on a case challenging Governor Mike Pence’s attempt to withhold funds from programs helping Syrian refugees relocate to Indiana.

American Civil Liberties Union lawyers say they’re confident the law won’t stand up to scrutiny.

Last November Governor Pence suspended state funding to organizations such as Exodus Refugee Immigration, in a move he said was to protect Hoosiers from foreign-born terrorists.

A judge Tuesday denied Indiana University’s attempt to join a lawsuit by the ACLU and Planned Parenthood challenging Indiana’s new anti-abortion law. 

The ACLU of Indiana, on behalf of Planned Parenthood, filed a lawsuit last month seeking to block a new state law that bars abortions performed solely because of a fetus’ potential disability, sex or race. 

Indiana University says a different part of the law, one that bans receiving fetal tissue, will criminalize its research on Alzheimer’s disease.

The ACLU of Indiana says it has no issue with Indiana University joining its lawsuit against the state over controversial anti-abortion legislation.

But the Indiana Attorney General’s office wants to block IU’s action.

The ACLU, on behalf of Planned Parenthood, filed suit last month seeking to block legislation that bans abortions performed solely because of a fetus’ potential disability, gender or race. 

Indiana University also wants to challenge the law, specifically, a section that criminalizes the receiving of fetal tissue.

Indiana will receive $9 million as a result of a settlement reached with drug producer Wyeth, which allegedly cheated multiple states’ Medicaid out of the money when it didn’t offer them federally-mandated rebates on specific drugs.

Indiana, along with 34 other states and the federal government, are sharing a nearly $800 million settlement with the company. Bryan Corbin of the Indiana Attorney General’s Office says drug companies such as Wyeth are required to give Medicaid programs certain rebates in order to save programs tax dollars.
