INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb was a busy man Wednesday.

Governor Holcomb signed 18 bills into law, covering a variety of issues, ranging from the training required of polcie officers to the rules about setting up war memorials throughout the state, to what qualifies a criminal to be transferred to the Department of Corrections.

Of local interest is Senate Bill 263, which allows county executives in a county with a population between 300,000 and 400,000 to appoint the members of the local board of health. Allen County leaders were pushing for just such a thing, after years of sharing that responsibility with the city of Fort Wayne.
