Accountability is our Responsibility

STATEHOUSE —Indiana House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) along with members of the House Republican Caucus unveiled the 2015 House Republican Legislative Agenda. They outlined their plan to increase accountability for all Hoosiers while strengthening Indiana in four major categories: Budget, Education, Ethics and Public Safety.

Speaker of the House: 2004-2006, 2010-Present

Indiana House of Representatives: 1986-Present

House District 88: Northeast portion of Marion County, a portion of southern Hamilton County and the western part of Hancock County

Occupation: Attorney - Kroger, Gardis & Regas

Education: B.S.E., Purdue University; J.D., Indiana University

Representative Bosma was first elected in 1986 to represent House District 88, which today encompasses the northeast portion of Marion County, a portion of southern Hamilton County and the western part of Hancock County.

As Speaker of the 114th General Assembly, Representative Bosma and the House Republicans worked to revitalize Indiana’s economy, passed the first balanced budget in a decade, adopted the strongest telecommunications reform legislation in the nation, created the position of Inspector General to expose and prevent fraud and corruption in state government, improved education opportunities for Hoosier school children, and addressed the needs of the most vulnerable in our state.

As Speaker of the 117th General Assembly, Bosma made sweeping changes to education reform through the House Republicans “Strengthen Indiana Plan.” He also broke 195 years of institutional tradition by appointing two Democrats to Committee Chair positions. In 2012, Speaker Bosma co-authored legislation making Indiana the 23rd Right to Work state.

Additionally, to encourage greater participation in the legislative process, Speaker Bosma opened House floor proceedings and House committee meetings to all Hoosiers via the Internet.

In the 118th General Assembly, Speaker Bosma along with House Republicans are working to create a budget with fiscal integrity, expanding educational opportunities and providing more opportunities for job creation by addressing the skills gap.

In his private life, Brian is a partner with the law firm of Kroger, Gardis, and Regas, focusing his practice in the areas of local government and environmental law. He was a founding Director of Bosma Industries for the Blind, Inc., which today employs over 85 blind and visually impaired Hoosiers in Central Indiana.

He is a graduate of Purdue University’s School of Engineering (1981) and the Indiana University School of Law (1984). Brian and his wife Cheryl attend Grace Community Church. They have two children: Chris, who is currently a student at the IU School of Medicine, and Allison, who is a chef in Colorado.
