Note to the Press – Former House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) today tendered his formal resignation as state representative for House District 88 and will leave office on July 31, 2020:

STATEHOUSE (July 17, 2020) – “After having the privilege of serving our state for more than 34 years, I am leaving with many friendships, experiences and memories – but even greater than all of those is my optimism for Indiana's future. We have made tremendous strides in nearly every category, from our enviable fiscal health to our top-ranked infrastructure and business climate. While there is more work to do and new challenges ahead, Indiana is fortunate to have strong conservative leaders at the helm who can carry our momentum forward."

Bosma, first elected Indiana House Speaker in 2004, was the state’s longest-serving Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives. During that time, he said notable policy accomplishments included passing a historic 20-year, fully funded roads plan, cutting or eliminating 14 taxes in the last 15 years, passing property tax reform and right-to-work, and empowering parents through implementing and expanding school choice.
