Indiana pays E-Rate program fines

Indiana and its Intelenet Commission have agreed to pay nearly $8.3 million in a civil settlement on charges of making false statements and claims to the E-Rate program, which helps poor schools and libraries connect to the Internet, the U.S. Department of Justice announced late Tuesday. In April, a former technology coordinator at a school district in South Carolina was indicted on charges that she used her position to funnel E-Rate money to a company she owned. In May, a former assistant superintendent at a Michigan school and his wife were arrested on similar charges.
