 The Message m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana The 00vorld around us COMIIENTARY by DEACON JIM CAVERA By the time you read this column, the Indiana Legisla- ture will have completed one third of its 61 session days. Already there are a number of bills that merit our atten- tion. Informed consent is the topic of HB 1174, SB 422 and SB 430. The Indiana Catholic Conference supports these bills because it is concerned that women be informed of alternatives to abortion, re- ceive accurate information, and be given time to think over their decision. The ICC is in support of HB 1206 which requires the state min- imum wage to increase to $4.50 by October, 1994. The school breakfast bill, HB na manse mimm I 1031, requires schools where at least 25 percent of students receive free or reduced-price lunches to provide a similar breakfast program. Currently 27 percent of Indiana schools have these programs and this bill aims at enlarging this program to target those chil- dren who come to school hungry and whose school performance is affected by a lack of good nutrition. Be- cause of ICC's concern for the health and education of chil- dren and the benefits of this program, support of HB 1031 is urged. In recognizing the sanctity of human life in all its stages, ICC supports HB 1442 and SB 351 which add the option of life without pa- role in place of the death penalty in sentencing proce- miinmml, limi mmnll dures. It further supports SB 477 which makes assisting suicide illegal and imposes a penalty. Indiana is currently using a standard of need in AFDC which is at 33 percent of the poverty level. ICC sup- ports HB 1073 which would increase our standard of need in AFDC to 100 percent. The ICC is in support of HB 1033 and HB 1181 which protect employment and benefits in the event a worker needs to take a family leave. These are state bills. There is a federal bill, titled $5 Family Leave, which also merits our sup- port. Also on the national front, the ICC continues to oppose the Freedom of Choice Act because we be- lieve it would override state rules as they apply to abor- aHem mmiam  aug mmwi  I I I I I I I I I I Jill Ann Hahn of Evansville is the winner of overnight lodging two or an afternoon I I pool party for eight at the Radisson Inn, Evansville.
