Provides that if an individual elected to an office is required to file a personal surety bond under Indiana law, a candidate for that office must file with the candidate's candidacy document a statement from a surety company authorized to do business in Indiana stating: (1) that the surety company will give a surety bond in the amount required by Indiana law for that office to cover the candidate, if elected to office; and (2) the cost of the bond. Provides that this requirement does not apply to candidates for federal office or candidates for an office created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana.
