This week, Democrats in the Indiana Senate announced their support of three legal initiatives that would affect the rights of undocumented immigrants living in Indiana. The lawmakers say the bills are a result of work with Latino community leaders across the state. One bill would allow undocumented students who attend Indiana high schools to pay in-state tuition rates at Indiana colleges. Another bill would allow undocumented immigrants to receive driver’s licenses. And the third bill would do away with a legal restriction that prevents many undocumented people from receiving dialysis treatment. WFHB News Director Joe Crawford spoke with State Senator Mark Stoops, one of the senators who worked on the legislative proposals. Stoops also represents much of the WFHB listening area in the Senate.

The influx of proposed developments in Bloomington is raising concerns at the city’s Commission on Sustainability. Last week, Rebecca Swanson gave a report to the Commission and listed five projects that she called “eye openingly large.” She included the recent passage by the Bloomington Plan Commission of a 30-foot height variance for a hotel on Kirkwood Avenue.

Last week local residents participating in Global Divestment day joined an estimated 450 events in 60 countries to bring awareness to the connection between climate change and the use of fossil fuels. Correspondent Alycin Bektesh has that story for today’s WFHB community report.
