Ind. Gov't. - How the farm industry fared in the 2015 session [Updated]

From Hoosier Ag Today, a story by Andy Eubanl headed "Some Farm Bureau Wins during 2015 Indiana Session."

From AgriNews, this story by Erica Quinlan that begins: "For Indiana Farm Bureau, the session ended on a high note, with progress being made on several key issues."

“The 2015 session of the Indiana General Assembly was a very successful one for Indiana Farm Bureau and its farmer members,” said Don Villwock, INFB president. “We were able to gain significant victories in each of our four legislative priorities: farmland taxes, forced annexation, water resources and the state budget.”
[Updated at 4:03 PM] Dan Carden of the NWI Times reports this afternoon:
... Gov. Mike Pence has signed legislation creating a state-run news service for farm commodity prices.

House Enrolled Act 1170, which takes effect July 1, permits Pence's Department of Agriculture to operate a market news service pilot program intended to provide Hoosier farmers unbiased reports on the prices paid for their products in different regions of the state.
