Indiana considering eliminating township governments

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- A controversial debate is heating up at the Indiana Statehouse.

Lawmakers are currently drafting a bill that would eliminate township governments. Some say they're too outdated. Others believe they're a vital resource for communities.

They say it's unrealistic for county councils to absorb the duties of township boards. Similar bills have failed in the past.

Indiana has more than 1,000 townships.
