Indianapolis city officials have decided not to provide any additional money to subsidize an Amtrak passenger line between Indianapolis and Chicago, casting its future into question.
Under the subsidy deal, the Indiana Department of Transportation, Indianapolis and six other local governments agreed to pay a $2.7 million subsidy to Amtrak after the passenger train agency announced it was ending funding for passenger lines shorter than 750 miles.
The city's decision to provide no additional funding comes after INDOT recently announced that a private vendor, Corridor Capital, had been selected to run the line and improve service along the 196-mile route.
Corridor Capital has promised changes, ranging from cleaner cars, modest food service, Wi-Fi, and on-time service — goals Amtrak was supposed to have reached by now in order to continue receiving state, county and city support.
The prolonged execution of an Arizona death row inmate with a new, two-drug combo has highlighted the patchwork quilt approach that states now take with lethal drugs, with types, combinations and dosages varying widely.
Oklahoma has authorized five different lethal injection protocols: a three-drug method beginning with sodium thiopental, pentobarbital, or midazolam, a two-drug procedure using midazolam and hydromorphone, or a single, lethal dose of pentobarbital.
 supplies of the drugs started to run short as death penalty opponents in Europe put pressure on their drugmakers — which manufactured key anesthetics — to prohibit their use in executions.
 states eager to avoid ongoing lawsuits alleging the old three-drug method caused inmates to suffer unconstitutional levels of pain looked for alternatives beginning about five years ago.
The compounded version is difficult to come by, with most compounding pharmacists reluctant to expose themselves to possible harassment by death penalty opponents.
Many death penalty experts, even some opponents, believe the quickest and most humane method is the firing squad.
Game and Fish has been under fire since June when a review by the state auditor's office criticized the agency's misuse of public money and its "noncompliance with laws, rules and policies."
The agency does not receive money from North Dakota's general fund and is instead supported by state licensing fees and federal tax money from the sale of firearms, ammunition and other sporting equipment.
The agency also was criticized for not safeguarding sensitive personal information, including Social Security numbers, and that some employees dealing with such information did not undergo the required background checks, the audit said.
Other problems uncovered by the audit included paying a person money for hunting access on land that he didn't own and providing improper funding to a nonprofit group.
Two men forced a woman into the backseat of her car at gunpoint and drove it into a group of people on a corner in Philadelphia on Friday, killing two children and critically injuring three other people, police said.
