Following the 2022 Midterm election, the previously democratically led Congress experienced a flip in the House of Representatives as a Republican majority won the election. While the U.S. Senate held a Democratic majority, the House of Representatives saw a shift in the majority party, which instituted a split in congressional majority. This is historically known to create limitations on how many bills are passed at state and national levels, as well as what types of bills are written and brought to the senate floor.
In 2023, the Indiana state legislature has seen and passed a variety of bills, some of which have been a topic of frequent debate. Many of these echo similar legislation arising around the country this year.
