Incoming Gov. Mike Pence is continuing a trend of keeping Gov. Mitch Daniels' agency heads in place as he builds his administration.
Pence announced Thursday that Maj. Gen. Martin Umbarger would continue as the head of Indiana's National Guard and Michael Cline would continue serving as state transportation commissioner. He also announced John Hill would take over Homeland Security and Virgil Madden would run the state's licensing board.
The new Pence administration is shaping up to look very similar to Daniels. Pence announced last week that Daniels veterans Rob Wynkoop and Mike Alley would stay on in their respective jobs as Department of Administration secretary and revenue commissioner.
Pence also said Thursday he had accepted an invitation from Notre Dame President John Jenkins to attend next month's championship game.
