(INDIANAPOLIS) - A cultural scholar says Indiana can stop the so called "brain drain."

Doctor Richard Florida says state lawmakers need to work toward what he calls the "3 Ts:" technology, talent, and tolerance. Florida made these comments, at a time when state lawmakers are considering bans on gay marriage and gay adoption.

Florida says it's an issue of asking young urban professionals what they want, as opposed to allowing a select few to make all the decisions. He says it's as simple as talking to kids about where they want to live.
