first_imgThe Indiana House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill to change state law to require private university police departments to disclose records related to arrests or incarcerations.The bill was approved by a 95-to-0 vote during last Thursday’s session. It will now move to the Indiana Senate for consideration.State Rep. Patrick Bauer (D-South Bend), co-author of the bill, said in a previous interview with The Observer that the purpose of the bill is to require university police departments to be more transparent with their public records. If passed, the bill would apply to Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP), the University’s private police force.In January 2015, ESPN filed a lawsuit against the University after NDSP refused to grant an ESPN reporter access to campus police records related to student-athletes. The case, ruled in Notre Dame’s favor by the St. Joseph Superior Court, was appealed to the Indiana Court of Appeals by ESPN. Oral arguments for the appeal are scheduled for Feb. 24, according to the South Bend Tribune.Bauer, a Notre Dame alumnus, said the bill is not a direct result of the ESPN lawsuit. Rather, he said the bill stems from concerns raised by Indiana citizens, including many Notre Dame graduates.Because the bill relates only to cases involving arrests and incarcerations, university police departments will still not be required to disclose the same range of records as public police departments.Bauer said the bill was crafted by bipartisan authors, with the help from the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). Although Bauer sits on the board of the ICI, he said there is no conflict of interest because his position is unpaid, according to the South Bend Tribune.Tags: independent colleges of indiana, Indiana House of Representatives, NDSP, Patrick Bauerlast_img read more

first_imgThe most recent Dodge Report analysis of construction contracts shows that Vermont is ahead of where it was a year ago because of heavy investment in highway and bridge building, much of which is due to federal stimulus funding. While residential and commercial construction continue to show weakness, those components are showing some rebound from the depths of the recession over the last 12 months. In all, both the most recent month ($76.1 million) reviewed (September) and the year-to-date ($852.9 million) data show that total construction contracts are ahead of where they were in 2008. The McGraw-Hill Dodge Reports look at construction projects under contract to determine future construction spending.last_img read more
