Indiana, one of the nation's last holdouts for observing daylight saving time, may be on the brink of changing its clocks. For the first time in more than two decades, the Indiana House has passed a bill that would require the entire state to move its clocks forward an hour in April and back an hour in October -- as do 47 other states. Knowing just what time it is on a trip through Indiana is no easy task: 77 counties in the Eastern time zone do not change clocks while five others do.

The state Court of Appeals struck down a law requiring government-issued photo identification for voters, overturning on state constitutional grounds a law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008. The law required voters to produce state or federal photo ID cards at their polling stations. Critics say it disenfranchised some poor, older and minority voters. Supporters contended it was needed to prevent voter fraud, which critics say is rare. The court agreed with the League of Women Voters that those who cast ballots in person were held to a stricter standard than absentee voters.

Former White House Budget Director Mitch Daniels was elected governor of Indiana on Tuesday, ousting incumbent Democrat Joe Kernan in a fierce, expensive contest that revolved around the loss of jobs in the state. More than $28 million was spent on the race, making it one of the costliest of the 11 governors' seats on the line this year. Daniels, 55, will be the first Republican governor of the state since 1988.

Former White House budget director Mitch Daniels easily defeated his conservative activist opponent Tuesday to win the GOP nomination for governor, drawing on the support of President Bush and Indiana's Republican leadership in the nation's first gubernatorial primary of the year. Daniels, who left the Bush administration to run in Indiana, will now face Gov. Joe Kernan, a Democrat who took office in September after the death of Gov.

Severe storms crippled central Indiana with as much as 10 inches of rain and flooding that threatened dams, inundated highways and forced the Coast Guard to rescue residents from swamped homes. Gov. Mitch Daniels declared an emergency in 10 counties. Ninety percent of the small town of Paragon, southwest of Indianapolis, was underwater, state Homeland Security Director Joe Wainscott said. Water reached the first floor of Johnson Memorial Hospital in Franklin, but no patients had to be moved.

For the first time since the election and after two international summits, President Obama leaves the Washington Beltway for an event meant to highlight on an issue that contributed to Democrats' steep losses on Nov. 2: the economy. FOR THE RECORD An earlier version of this article said Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels had not been invited to the president's event in the state Tuesday. Jake Oakman, spokesman for Daniels, now says the governor was invited but declined because of a scheduling conflict.

Herman Cain had 9-9-9. Lately, Mitt Romney is all about E-E-E. As in, the economy, energy and -- new this week -- education. Romney rolled out his education plan at a speech in Washington last week, and followed up with a visit to a charter school in West Philadelphia. Now, both the Associated Press and Education Week are taking him to task for what they deem to be misstatements about President Obama's education record. Fair? Along with touting his own education record as governor of Massachusetts, the presumptive Republican nominee attacked Obama for, among other things, being a tool of the teachers unions.

A land mine exploded under a U.S. vehicle south of the Afghan capital Saturday, killing four soldiers in the deadliest incident for American troops in Afghanistan in almost 10 months, the military said. The blast highlighted the dangers still facing foreign and Afghan troops more than three years after the fall of the Taliban, although there were conflicting accounts about whether the mine was freshly laid or leftover from Afghanistan's long wars.
