Indiana Government

image of Indiana

Indiana’s state government is overseen by the Governor. There also are a number of elected officials who oversee various state agencies, such as the Education Department. Its representative body is called the Indiana General Assembly, composed of the Indiana State Senate and the Indiana House of Representatives (not to be confused with the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives). There are 50 Indiana State Senators and 100 Indiana State Representatives.

The Indiana General Assembly includes information about current bills and resolutions, the current state constitution, laws including state code, committees, and reports.
