INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Two national organizations have recognized Indiana's efforts to bring transparency to state government.

This is the second year in a row that Indiana is being recognized as being a national leader in operating an open and honest government.

The awards came from “the Sunshine Review”, a national non-partisan government transparency agency and “the United States Public Interest Research Group” (US PIRG).
