Domestic Violence Activists and State Reach Agreement

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Advocates treating victims of domestic violence and state officials have reached an agreement over funding for the state's domestic violence shelters.
Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence director Laura Berry said Thursday that her group has reached a deal with the state that avoids roughly $1 million in cuts that had been planned. 
The issue was poised to boil over Friday at a meeting of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute's board of trustees. But the deal with the state calls for a separate meeting in two weeks where all of the $3.5 million approved by lawmakers will be approved by state officials.
Gov. Mike Pence has continued a practice of cutting agency budgets at the start of each year in order to maintain the state's significant cash reserves.
