House District 67 includes all of Ripley, Ohio and Switzerland counties and sections of Decatur, Jennings, Jefferson and Dearborn counties in south eastern Indiana.
Many drivers have started to encounter orange barrels, closed road signs and construction crews in our area. All of this is the beginning phase of Indiana’s five-year ‘Next Level Roads’ initiative. Even though construction means closures and traffic delays, let’s look down the road to a smoothly paved future benefiting Hoosier communities.
These past few weeks, I have visited seven county fairs in our area. Hopefully, you were also able to enjoy all of the local food and 4-H projects. With many schools starting this week, the summer fun doesn’t have to come to an end.

This week, we celebrate our country’s 241st birthday. This time of year always brings out the patriot in us all, with fervent pride in the country we call home. It has become a tradition to memorialize this holiday with parades, cookouts and fireworks. As we celebrate, let’s remember to put safety first.
Indiana’s state motto is The Crossroads of America. Some historians say this is due to Indianapolis being the hub of several major interstate highways that criss-cross Indiana and connect Hoosiers to the rest of the U.S. Others say Highways 40 and 41 opened the West for settlement and were designated as part of the original federal highway system in 1926. The intersection of these two highways in Terre Haute became the Crossroads of America. Either way, we have been labeled as such, and with thousands of out-of-state motorists traveling our roadways, it makes sense to support a user-pays approach when developing a system for improving our infrastructure.
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. The last weekend in May symbolizes the kick-off to summer. Some of us enjoyed cookouts, parades, the Indy 500, swimming and just relaxing with family and friends. However, we need to remember what the true meaning is behind Memorial Day.

To memorialize Sept. 11, 2001, Alan Jackson penned a song titled, “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?” Answers to this question vary, but for myself, I vividly remember I was on duty at the fire station when those four planes crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon and that lonely field in Pennsylvania, claiming thousands of American lives. Even though 15 years have passed, we are still feeling the effects of that fateful day.
Football season is upon us, which not only means my Sundays are booked until next February, but that I also get to enjoy watching my grandsons grow into great sportsmen.

In the midst of fair season, I wanted to take time to talk about agriculture and how farming has been a way of life since the founding of our state 200 years ago. In fact, our economy thrives off of Indiana’s agriculture industry, bringing in more than $44 billion and employing 190,000 Hoosiers. Indiana is part of the Corn Belt and is one of the leading states for soybean, pork and egg production in the U.S. As a legislator, I know agriculture plays a vital role in our livelihood and I will continue to promote legislation benefiting our farming industry.
