Pence plans to name additional team members

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — New Gov. Mike Pence is expected to round out his team of top aides this week.

The new governor's schedule for Thursday afternoon showed him announcing more members of his administration.

The Republican took office Monday as Indiana's 50th governor and has spent the week getting settled into the new job. Pence picked most members of his cabinet ahead of his inauguration, but Pence has yet to appoint the leaders of the Family and Social Services Administration, the Department of Child Services and the Department of Agriculture

The child services and social services agencies both drew intense scrutiny and frequent criticism during the tenure of former Gov. Mitch Daniels.
