CWN Editor's Note: Gov. Eric Holcomb of Indiana has signed legislation requiring public schools to release students, upon parental request, for up to two hours per week for religious instruction.

State law previously permitted—but did not require—public school principals to release students. The new legislation passed the state house and state senate by large majorities (69-25 and 32-16).
