Note to the Press – Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of Senate President Pro Tem David Long’s (R-Fort Wayne) announcement that he will retire from the Indiana Senate in November after more than 20 years of public service:
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 13, 2018) — “President Pro Tem David Long has played a critical role in Indiana’s transformation to a state with a top-rated business climate, strong economy and record of honestly balanced budgets. Under strong Republican leadership, our state continues to lead the way as the fiscal envy of the nation while boasting the No. 1 ranked state government. David has helped drive Indiana’s success story, and his leadership and experience will be sorely missed at the Statehouse. It’s been an honor to serve alongside him and call him my friend.
