The Indiana State Fair Commission has hired a chief operating officer to develop a comprehensive public safety plan.
The members of Sugarland gave depositions about the state fair stage collapse, but those have not been made public.
More than one hundred witnesses were questioned…though employees of the company that built the stage declined.
The reports from two investigations into the state fair stage collapse will be released today.
The Indiana State Fair Commission will receive the reports during their monthly meeting Thursday.
A court ruled Friday Sugarland must give a limited deposition for the lawsuit regarding the Indiana State Fair stage collapse.
The members of Sugarland say they will make themselves available for depositions in May.
The smoking ban received the most attention in the Indiana legislature this week. The General Assembly also passed bills on stage regulations and police entry.
The bill directs the state Fire Marshall’s office to develop regulations for outdoor stage equipment within 60 days.
The bill is going back to the Senate for approval with the included amendments.
