Indiana minorities don’t have proportional representation

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s minorities do not enjoy proportional representation in the Legislature or the state’s congressional delegation, according to data compiled by the Associated Press.

For example, Latinos make up almost 7 percent of the state’s population, but less than 1 percent of the Legislature. The state’s nine-member congressional delegation includes one African-American, but no Latinos.
