Some more news out of the Indiana Statehouse today.
Lawmakers are making progress on the state’s 2018 agenda, and two bills are helping pave the way.
Earlier this afternoon, the Senate passed the proposed bill on Sunday alcohol sales, by a majority vote of 39 to 10.
Senate Bill 1 would allow Indiana grocery, convenience and liquor stores to sell alcohol on Sundays from noon to 8 P.M. It now moves to the House for consideration.
Also today, another bill made its way through the Senate.
This one, regarding cursive writing.
Senate Bill 8 would require each Indiana school corporation, charter school and accredited nonpublic elementary school to include cursive writing in their curriculum.
This is the seventh time the bill has been introduced to lawmakers.
But, it has never gone beyond the Senate in the past.
This time however, the bill passed 38 to 11. It now moves to the House of Representatives, for hopeful action.
