HSPA successfully defeated H.B. 1498, which would have allowed government units to eliminate the publication requirement for public notices. Our luck wasn't as good with S.B. 332, which will allow government entities to move multi-run notices from the newspaper to "official websites" after publication of the first notice. Following is a rundown of all the bills HSPA flagged concerning public notices: H.B. 1498 – Rep. Doug Miller, R-Elkhart, authored this bill to allow govern- ment units to move their public notices from newspapers to government websites. HSPA met with Rep. Miller to express its opposition and explain that HSPA planned to propose legislation in 2022 to modern- ize the state's public notice policy. Legislative Wrap HSPA flags, fights public notice bills during session When Kellyn Harrison got a front page byline at her internship paper this month, she Tweeted out that it was surreal — she had been holding the Monticello Herald Journal in her hands since pre-school and now she was working for it. The Ball State junior, who has served as editor-in- chief for Byte Magazine at BSU, is one of nine college students participating in the Eugene S. Pulliam Internship Program. Each year, students are matched with papers by the HSPA Founda- tion for a 10-week, paid opportu- nity through the program named in honor of the late publisher of The Indianapolis Star and The Indianapolis News. "I think we have another great group of students representing all parts of the state," said Juli Metzger who is serving as a mentor for the 2021 Pulliam class. Students have already been reaching on to consult with Metzger and ask for advice. "What's so gratifying is that they are enthusiastic and anxious to jump in and do the work," said Pulliam interns begin reporting jobs at papers across Indiana See Interns, page 13 See Legacy, page 12 "I think we have another great group of students representing all parts of the state."
