INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Republican-led Indiana Senate has approved a bill to eliminate township boards and transfer their duties to the county level starting in 2013.

The chamber voted 30-20 Thursday to approve a House bill that had largely been rewritten in the Senate. The Senate version stripped out language that would have allow voters in every Indiana township to vote in November on whether to eliminate their township trustees and township boards and transfer those duties to the county.
