The state Senate today voted to repeal Indiana’s Common Construction Wage Law; Freedom Indiana announced a new campaign today, just less than two weeks after the group helped force state legislators to amend the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA); The Bloomington Plan Commission has approved a redevelopment plan for the northeast corner of the College Mall; Indiana University has received a five hundred thousand dollar gift from philanthropists Cynthia Stewart Simon and William Simon Jr.
IU Health officials announced this morning they are changing the course of plans to relocate the Bloomington Hospital. The Hospital still plans to move out of its downtown location, a decision that has been unpopular with many Bloomington residents, but the new facility is now scheduled for construction at the IU Golf Course, located on the northeast side of town along the bypass. Before today, the plan had been to move the hospital west of city limits on North Park, where the hospital already owns land. Several officials, including Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan, IU President Michael McRobbie and IU Health Bloomington President Mark Moore, praised the new plan this morning. We bring you some of those comments for today’s WFHB community report.
