Coming up on Indiana Newsdesk, people living in small Indiana Townships say they value the personal feeling of government, but a bill at the statehouse could mean big changes are on the way.

Governor Eric Holcomb’s State of the State address focused on his key “pillars.” But his brief comments about Department of Child Services garnered as much or more attention.

And we’ll look at Bloomington’s Comprehensive Master Plan and why some residents worry the plans doesn’t do enough to curb large development projects.

Those stories plus the latest headlines from across the state Friday at 6 p.m. on Indiana Newsdesk.
