INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Aug. 13, 2011: High winds cause outdoor stage rigging to collapse at Indiana State Fair grandstand as thousands of fans await a concert by country duo Sugarland. The collapse killed seven people and injured nearly 60.
Sept. 23, 2011: State officials approve a plan to distribute money from a relief fund comprised of donations for fair victims.
Oct. 28, 2011: Sugarland returns to Indianapolis for concert to benefit victims.
Nov. 10, 2011: Fair officials announce all 2012 concerts will be held at Banker's Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis.
Nov. 23, 2011: U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker certifies victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse as a single class in a lawsuit challenging a law that caps the state's liability at $5 million.
Dec. 6, 2011: Attorney General Greg Zoeller outlines a payment schedule for victims that would give at least $300,000 to families of each of the seven people who died. A 17-year-old Indianapolis boy paralyzed in the collapse was to receive more than $500,000, and a Pendleton woman who suffered severe head injuries was to get nearly $450,000. The remainder of the money from the $5 million tort fund would go to others injured in the collapse.
Feb. 8, 2012: Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration fines Mid-America Sound Corp. of Greenfield $63,000 for three serious violations of industry standards, which it said contributed to the stage collapse. The IOSHA report also includes testimony from Indiana Fair Commission Executive Director Cindy Hoye, who said Sugarland resisted delaying the start of the concert amid concerns about how a delay would affect the time lead singer Jennifer Nettles needed to warm up and complicate the band's travel to its next show.
Feb. 9, 2012: The Indiana State Fair Commission says it has paid state regulators a $6,300 fine for workplace violations related to the collapse. IOSHA cited the fair commission for failing to conduct proper safety evaluations of its concert venues. The agency also said fair officials' emergency plans were inadequate.

April 12, 2012: Results of two independent investigations into the collapse and the fair's preparedness are released. An engineering review by Thornton Tomasetti found that the stage rigging that collapsed during last summer's Indiana State Fair wasn't built strong enough to meet state building codes. A separate report by Washington, D.C.-based Witt Associated found the fair lacked a fully developed emergency plan.
May 10, 2012: Indiana State Fair Commission announces management changes spurred by the collapse. The fair hired venue manager David Shaw as chief operating officer to handle day-to-day operations and Jessie Olvera as director of safety and security.
June 14, 2012: State Fair Commission unanimously approves a 425-page emergency management plan that adopts recommendations made by consultant Witt Associates and formalizes procedures that already were in place but not used the night of the Aug. 13 collapse. The new plan gives Shaw the responsibility for postponing or canceling events amid threatening conditions or, in his absence, Olvera.
June 22, 2012: Attorney General Greg Zoeller links the additional $6 million lawmakers approved for victims of the stage collapse to a settlement offer from two of the companies involved in the incident. Under the deal, victims would share in the $6 million only if they agree to clear Mid-America Sound Corp. and James Thomas Engineering of any wrongdoing. In return, they would share in $7.2 million the companies are offering.
