STATEHOUSE—  “At a time when we have over 300,000 Hoosiers unemployed, it is extremely disappointing that the majority of our Democrat colleagues have chosen not to honor their commitment. They have refused to show up to the House floor to discuss pieces of legislation that work to promote Hoosier employment. We have been elected by our communities to come to the House floor and be the voice or our districts. That is what they have a responsibility to do.

“By not showing up to work, the Democrats are delaying the legislative process. Their refusal to show up and to honor a commitment they willingly made to those who elected them is unacceptable.” 


Rep. Bob Heaton represents District 46 which includes parts of Owen, Clay, Monroe and Vigo Counties. Rep. Heaton serves as Vice Chair of the Financial Institutions Committee. He is also a member of the Government and Regulatory Reform, Insurance and Natural Resources Committees.
