Right now on Indiana Newsdesk … the state approves the first needle-exchange program under new legislation. But how long will it last? We talk to experts about how Indiana counties facing the threat of HIV outbreaks can keep from sharing the fate of Scott County, where nearly 160 people have contracted the virus.

Governor Mike Pence is running for re-election… ahead, how the issues he’s championed the past four years could help and hurt his chances at a second term.

And cities are becoming more reliant on alternative funding mechanisms to boost economic development. Are they working? We explain the ins and outs of special taxing districts… including one that covers a fifth of the city of Bloomington.

Those stories plus the latest top headlines from across the state.
