On two issues -- sentencing reform and local government reform -- the Indiana General Assembly took a step in the right direction this year, but not far enough.
The Indiana General Assembly appears to be planning to take another look at the structure of county government this summer. It's a good idea.
INDIANAPOLIS | The images of houses under water in New York and New Jersey because of Superstorm Sandy call to mind the thousands of Northwest Indiana homes flooded in 2008 following a major storm.
The feud between the Porter County Council and the Board of Commissioners would be settled if local government reform were to be enacted finally in Indiana.
In 2005, we witnessed the extraordinary powers of a governor willing to use his political capital.
It's very possible that the election of the new Porter County assessor could be turned into an argument for a county manager system.
When Porter County Assessor Jon Snyder took office, he promised to do his best to make that office operate efficiently, effectively and fairly. There was more work to be done than he realized.
It's an unfortunate irony that Indiana, with our well-deserved reputation for keeping government lean and accountable, is awash in elected officials and layers of local administration.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels laid out an aggressive agenda for change Tuesday and gave a rousing pep talk to the Indiana General Assembly. His impatience in his State of the State Address mirrors ours.
