INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s 123rd legislative session can be summed up in three words: greed, hate and harm. That’s according to the Sierra Club Hoosier Chapter, who released its 2023 Scorecard on Monday, grading Indiana’s legislators and Governor Holcomb on their votes during the recently concluded legislative session.

According to the group, the leadership of both the Indiana House and the Indiana Senate put the greed of special interests ahead of the needs of everyday people in their districts. They passed bills described by civil liberties organizations as “The Slate of Hate.” And in the midst of the climate crisis and economic uncertainty, they backed fossil fuels and handed over more of our money to monopoly utilities. Their actions this session will directly harm Hoosiers’ lives and homes, as well as our air, land and water. Gov. Holcomb signed those bills into law, and we’ve included him in this year’s Scorecard as well.
