STATEHOUSE (Nov. 10, 2020) – House Republicans re-elected State Rep. Todd Huston (R-Fishers) to serve as House Speaker during a caucus on Tuesday in Indianapolis.

Huston is expected to be confirmed by the full Indiana House of Representatives on Tuesday, Nov. 17, which is known as Organization Day and the formal start to the 2021 legislative session. Huston was first elected to the key leadership post in March to fill the remaining term of retiring House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis). This would be Huston's first full term serving as House Speaker.

"I am honored and excited about this opportunity to once again lead our talented team as we all work to maintain our momentum and ensure that Indiana gets back to operating at full speed," Huston said. "We will continue to promote and encourage an atmosphere of civility and bipartisanship, especially as we navigate the challenges of this pandemic together. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate, and our governor as we gear up for session and take the peoples' priorities across the finish line."

House Republicans also re-elected State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) as Majority Caucus Chair, State Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne) as Majority Floor Leader and Caroline Spotts as House Clerk.
