Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of the Senate’s passage of House Bill 1005, which would move up the appointment date of the Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction from 2025 to 2021:

STATEHOUSE (March 19, 2019) – “Indiana’s students, parents and schools deserve consistency in the coordination and the administration of education policy, and having an appointed secretary of education is a critical step toward this goal. I am pleased lawmakers of both chambers supported moving up the start date of this position given the current superintendent’s decision to not seek a second term.” 

Bosma, author of House Bill 1005, said the measure now moves to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s desk for consideration.  


Indiana House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) represents
