INDIANAPOLIS — Negotiations fell apart among Republican legislators Wednesday on a proposal that could have forced Indiana’s attorney general from office if his law license is suspended over allegations that he drunkenly groped four women.

Senate Republicans wouldn’t agree with a provision backed by the House and GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb that would have prohibited anyone whose law license has been suspended for at least 30 days from serving as attorney general. The proposal died as this year’s legislative session drew to an end late Wednesday.
