There’s breaking news late this afternoon that Governor Mitch Daniels has cancelled the state’s much-criticized contract to privative Indiana’s welfare system.
Here’s the lead of that story from the Indianapolis Star:
Gov. Mitch Daniels today canceled the state’s $1.34 billion contract with an IBM-led group to privatize Indiana’s welfare system.
The cancellation is a stunning turnaround from Daniels’ December 2006 decision to award the contract.
