Unless you have worked at the Indiana Statehouse for the last 50 years, you are probably wondering whether or not that sentence is in English. We are here to tell you that it is, in fact, English and just a few of the many terms you can find in a new glossary published by the Senate Democrats to make sure Hoosiers are in the know when it comes to legislative jargon.

Our Online Glossary of Legislative Terms contains over 200 different terms to help active citizens learn more about the Indiana General Assembly and acts as a quick reference guide for those that tune into legislative meetings and hear a word that they just can’t place.

So, next time the Senate President Pro Tempore calls for a blast motion, you’ll be able to look it up online here.
