INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana's inspector general says Gov. Eric Holcomb committed no wrongdoing when he accepted two private jet flights paid for by a casino magnate to Republican Governors Association events.

The inspector general's office investigated whether Holcomb failed to disclose information about gifts received.

The office determined that those gifts - the two flights - were provided to the Republican Governors Association, and not to Holcomb's office.
