Organization Day: Republicans focus on jobs and education
STATEHOUSE – Indiana Legislators were sworn in today, Organization Day, which marks the first meeting for the 118th General Assembly. All 100 members of the House, including 19 new Republicans, were sworn in by Chief Justice Brent Dickson.
“Just like a responsible family, we will sit together at our desks on the House floor and in the committee rooms of this building – and work through the monumental issues facing our state,” said newly reelected Speaker of the House, Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis).
State Representative Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) was reelected to represent House District 40, which now includes the western portion of Hendricks County.
“I am honored to represent my community for another term at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Steuerwald. “I am focused on getting Hoosiers back to work by strengthening our state’s economy to be the most conducive environment for job growth in the country.”
In October, the House Republican Caucus released their legislative agenda, making it clear that their focus will be on financial integrity, jobs and education. That focus was echoed today as the 69 House Republicans prepared for the upcoming session with a resolve to accomplish those priorities and continue to propel Indiana to be a state where Hoosiers have the ability to own their American Dream.
“My top priority is to make Indiana the best place to live, work and raise a family. Hoosiers understand the value of hard work and determination, and that is exactly what it will take to make our state the envy of the nation,” said Rep. Steuerwald
