AG: More fetal remains found in abortion doc's storage unit
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say additional fetal remains have been found at a Chicago-area storage unit that was being rented by a late doctor who performed abortions in Indiana.
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said in a news release that Dr. Ulrich Klopfer's family members found the additional remains Wednesday, but he didn't say how many sets there were.
Hill spokeswoman Lauren Houck said the additional remains were found at a storage unit Klopfer had rented in Cook County, where Chicago is located.
Hill said last week that the more than 2,200 sets of preserved fetal remains that were found last month in Klopfer's garage in Will County, near Chicago, had been returned to Indiana.
Klopfer performed abortions at Indiana clinics located in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend. He died Sept. 3.
Holcomb announces $436M EPA loan to support water projects
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Eric Holcomb says a $436 million federal loan will help finance 28 wastewater and drinking water projects in 20 communities across Indiana.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler joined Holcomb at the Statehouse on Wednesday to announce the loan through the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act. The funding supports projects that will deliver clean water and protect public health.
Drinking water projects will include efforts to improve water treatment plants, storage tanks, distribution system components, wells and pump stations and water conservation measures. Wastewater projects will include efforts to increase capacity of wastewater treatment plants, tunnels to capture combined sewer overflows and collection systems.
The loan will save the Indiana Finance Authority an estimated $20 million compared to typical bond financing.
