INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Health care reform continues to be a controversial topic and Hoosiers are split on how they feel about it.
In the WISH-TV/Ball State University Hoosier Survey, 43 percent said they have a favorable view of what's known as Obamacare. 42 percent look at it unfavorably. 13 percent said they don't know how to rate it yet.
When asked about specific provisions of health care reform, 82 percent said affordable healthcare is very important.
74 percent of those asked believe it's very important to prohibit insurance companies from canceling policies because of pre-existing conditions.
64 percent said health care coverage for everyone is very important.
50 percent support the portion of Obamacare that allows children up to age 26 to be covered under their parents' insurance.
Just 33 percent felt an individual mandate that requires people to buy insurance is very important.
The Hoosier Survey was conducted for WISH-TV and the Bowen Center for Public Affairs by Princeton Research Associates International (PSRAI) from Nov. 12 - 24, 2012. PSRAI surveyed 602 Hoosier adults by landline and cell phone, chosen randomly, yielding a margin of sampling error of +/- 4.5 percent. In addition to providing statewide results, some findings also were broken down by region.
An 83-year-old woman was killed in a house fire in Owen County Tuesday night.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office asked that drivers use caution Wednesday morning as black ice was reported on some bridges in the county.
