INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) - Governor Eric Holcomb will be sworn in Monday morning to serve again as Indiana's governor.
This is Gov. Holcomb's second term. Indiana's law states that there is no limit to the amount of times a person can serve as governor, however a person cannot serve more than eight years in at 12 year period. This means after this next term, Gov. Holcomb would have to sit out an election cycle before he could run again for the position.
Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch and newly elected Attorney General Todd Rokita will also take the oath of office. It's happening at the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis at 11am.
