While serving as an Indiana legislator in the 1960s, Ned Lamkin was part of a group that created unified government in central Indiana. This was the consolidation of numerous units of government into a larger organization. At the time, Ned also advocated for mini government under the hypothesis that small units should have powers such as implementing parking regulations. The topic is relevant today when county government appears inadequate to the general needs of the region.
