Indiana senators ask feds to call them Hoosiers

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's two U.S. senators are asking the federal Government Publishing Office to refer to all state residents as "Hoosiers."

The board currently uses the phrase "Indianan" to describe residents of the state. But Indiana Sen. Dan Coats and Sen. Joe Donnelly sent a letter on Tuesday asking for the change to the publishing office's style board, which sets the rules and standards for products printed or published by the federal government.

If the board agrees to the change, the term "Hoosier" would appear in the 2016 style guide.
