INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mike Pence has signed legislation designed to promote adoption, assist Indiana veterans and promote Indiana agriculture.The governor approved a measure supporting production of industrial hemp Wednesday and a program promoting Indiana-grown products.

He signed into law Tuesday a new tax credit to promote adoption. He also approved the creation of a program for women veterans and a measure encouraging veterans to become teachers.
