INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana lawmakers are putting the finishing touches on proposals to boost school safety funding and to lift the state's ban on granting professional occupation licenses to young immigrants referred to as "Dreamers."
But several other key issues have yet to be resolved before the legislative session adjourns for the year on Wednesday.
Negotiations were continuing on proposals for eliminating handgun licensing fees and making changes to the leadership of the state's workforce development programs.
Other issues still in play include legislation allowing Ball State University to take over Muncie schools, a measure giving parents more control over sex education and a stopgap school funding bill.
Lawmakers, meanwhile, spent much of Tuesday giving speeches and honoring those who were retiring from the Legislature.
