(INDIANAPOLIS) — It’s not just Washington with security concerns about next week. The Indiana
General Assembly is on edge as well.
House Speaker Todd Huston advised members Thursday to be prepared for the possibility of last-
minute schedule changes in the event of a security threat. And he and Senate President Pro Tem
Rod Bray say there’ll be extra state troopers at the statehouse.
Huston and Bray say they’re not aware of any specific threats targeting Indianapolis. Huston says
he’s basing his concern on what’s publicly known, including a generalized FBI warning of potential
armed protests by extremist groups at all 50 state capitols as President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office.
State Police Superintendent Doug Carter has said he’s not aware of any plans for violence in Indy
specifically, but that police have security plans in place.
