It is always exciting when the bell rings for the first time in a new school year.

Chapter one of this school year begins with new laws to better protect students and staff.
This year, the American Legion is celebrating its 100th anniversary as the nation’s premier veteran organization focused on serving veterans, active service members and local communities. This anniversary is a good reminder that we are called to help, serve and care for the service members who protect our freedom.
It is easy to take for granted the rights and liberties we possess as Americans. A right many often overlook is the ability to choose our local, state and national leaders. The coming year marks the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which secured right to vote for women. This historic occasion is an opportunity for us to reflect on the legacy of women’s suffrage and continue the fight for more equal representation in our government and in our society.
It was a Sunday night and we were all gathered around the black and white television. I was only 11 years old, but it was something I knew I couldn’t miss. American astronauts were going to land and walk on the moon. Even after 50 years, I still remember Apollo 11, the three astronauts’ names, even Michael Collins who made the 240,000-mile trip to the moon but never stepped foot on it.

This legislative session, lawmakers considered a variety of bills to help keep Indiana healthy. I remain committed to working with the medical community and my colleagues at the Statehouse to ensure Hoosiers continue to have access to the care and medication that meets their needs. I authored a new law eliminating some burdens placed on medical professionals and allowing for emergency prescription refills so more Hoosiers will get the care they need to live healthier lives.
Many Hoosiers suffer from depression and other mental health conditions, and there are critical steps we can take to ensure they have the support, counseling and care they need.
STATEHOUSE (July 11, 2019) – “Indiana is once again in the spotlight as a national leader for making strong investments in roads and bridges. Our road funding plan is based on conservative principles where those who use the roads help pay for them, and we don’t pass on debt to future generations. Our responsible, comprehensive and sustainable plan has propelled us to the top and most important, Hoosier drivers and employers are seeing the positive results in their local communities.”
