On Friday, Gov. Eric J. Holcomb signed SEA 236 at Cumberland Elementary School in West Lafayette, making the Say’s Firefly Indiana’s state insect.
“The perseverance shown by these Hoosier students is inspiring—to kids and adults alike. After years of advocating for this bill, we’re all aflutter to make it official today,” Gov. Holcomb said. “For the students, this has been an immersive experience that’s taught them about our government, science, art, public speaking and more. I hope they take what they’ve learned in advancing this legislation and put it to work in their communities throughout their lives. Their futures are flashing and bright.”
