Highlights in this issue:

• Indiana lawmakers amend the Ag Gag bill to remove criminal defamation and change the education bill to keep publication requirements for school district financial reports.

 • Outgoing HSPA Board of Directors President Greg Morris urges publishers to work with HSPA to fight the attack on public notices. “This year’s legislative attack is just the beginning of a protracted fight that will need your full attention and response,” Morris writes in his News Biz column.

 • HSPA’s efforts to preserve public notice advertising include an upgrade to its public notice website. In order to make the website a success for all newspapers, HSPA needs PDF’s of member newspapers pages.

 • In his Key Points column, HSPA Executive Director and General Counsel Steve Key says Indiana’s citizen legislature demonstrated its professionalism with several recent bills affecting Indiana newspapers.
