State Insect Bill Passes Legislature

It’s been debated for years, but after a vote Tuesday afternoon the firefly will become the official state insect of Indiana.

The effort was led by elementary school students who sent letters to the governor pushing to make the firefly…also known as the lightning bug…the official state insect.

The bill was approved by the House on Tuesday and is now on its way to Governor Eric Holcomb’s desk for his signature.
