The Indiana State Department of Health reported 31 additional confirmed deaths over the weekend, bringing the state’s total to 2,500. The state announced more than 48,000 total confirmed cases, with more than 521,000 Hoosiers tested.

The U.S. Department of Education announced it approved Indiana’s new four-year plan for career and technical education. It’s part of a larger strategy to guide both youth and adults towards jobs.

The vast majority of laws passed each year by the Indiana General Assembly take effect either immediately or on July 1.

But there are always a few measures each year that don’t take effect for a few more months.

The General Assembly sometimes delays implementation of new legislation to give more time to adjust to the law’s changes.
