1:30 p.m. 82A01-1201-PL-2. Alva Electric, Inc., Arc Construction Company, Inc., Danco Construction, Inc., Deig Brothers Lumber & Construction Co., Empire Contractors, Inc., Peyronnin Construction Company, Inc., Weddle Brothers Construction Company, Inc., and Wink Construction Inc. (collectively, “the Contractors”), on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated taxpayers within the district of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (“the school corporation”), appeal the Vanderburgh Circuit Court’s denial of their motion for summary judgment and grant of a cross-motion for summary judgment in favor of the school corporation and its related foundation, on the contractors’ claims under Indiana’s Public Lawsuit Statute (Ind. Code §§ 34-13-5-1 to -12) and Antitrust Act (Ind. Code § 24-1-2-3). The contractors challenge the propriety of the grant of summary judgment as the sole issue on appeal. Specifically, they argue that the trial court erred in concluding that the contested building renovation project was not subject to competitive bidding procedures.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
