May 16, 2023: Howey Daily Wire May 16, 2023
Correction: A Goshen News story excerpted in Tuesday’s Howey Daily Wire said Attorney General Todd Rokita dismantled the Indian Child Welfare Act. According to the attorney general’s office, “Rokita in his time in office hasn’t backed, joined, or initiated any form of dismantling the Indian Child Welfare Act. The case that was joined over this subject was done under Attorney General Curtis Hill. Rokita has made no further moves in this case, including not participating at the Supreme Court, which is tantamount to withdrawing under the circumstances.”
May 9, 2023: Howey Daily Wire May 9, 2023
Correction: An item about Indianapolis Republican mayoral nominee Jefferson Shreve was removed from today’s Daily Wire after it was brought to our attention that Shreve disputed an IndyStar report that stated he backs criminalizing abortion. “I strongly oppose the prosecution of women who may seek an abortion, and this is a failure by the Indianapolis Star to provide its readers with accurate information,” Shreve said in a statement to Howey Politics Indiana. The Star story was excerpted in today’s Howey Daily Wire. The Star corrected its story on Tuesday: “Jefferson Shreve’s comments about disagreeing with the Marion County prosecutor’s decision not to prosecute certain crimes were misattributed in an earlier version of this story. He was speaking about marijuana possession and street crimes, not abortion. This story has been updated.”

April 25, 2023: Howey Daily Wire April 24, 2023
Correction: A previous version of this Howey Daily Wire, citing an Indiana Public Media report, stated that AG Todd Rokita was “dropping his attempt to reverse a part of a prior ruling,” but in fact, he is dropping an attempt to reopen a lawsuit against himself, his office tells us. Tuesday’s brief also stated that Dr. Caitlin Bernard was found to have properly reported the abortion; that is incorrect. The IndyStar reports that “Bernard has maintained she did not share confidential information about a patient and reported the operation as required by law,” but she has not officially been cleared.

Correction: Hawver’s Capitol Report incorrectly reported on Wednesday that Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Marla Luckert said that the high court retains jurisdiction over its decision dealing with health care/abortion rights for women. She instead said the court retains jurisdiction over its decisions relating to the financing of public schools but won’t re-examine school funding unless a motion is filed with the court. Luckert also said the court system no longer faces a shortage of judges. We regret the errors.
