The Ohio State Insect
The Ladybug has been designated as the official Ohio State Insect.
Being official and being law are two different things however. The Ladybug's status has never been passed into law. Instead, it became the official Ohio State Insect by resolution.
A resolution is a formal expression of the Ohio General Assembly and does not require the signature of the Governor. A concurrent resolution requires the approval of both houses of the General Assembly but is not filed with the Secretary of State.
The Ladybug was designated as the official state insect by Senate Concurrent Resolution 14, 111th General Assembly, 1975-1976 Session. The Ladybug is one of two official Ohio State Symbols that is not official by law. The other member of this lawless duo is the official State Rock Song.
