[r47] Rep. Price ready to serve Hoosiers (11/20/2012)

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Start Date: 11/20/2012 All Day
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 Rep. John Price (R- Greenwood) was sworn in as a new member of the freshman class representing House District 47, which now includes portions of Johnson and Morgan counties.


“I am humbled and honored to be given this opportunity,” said Rep. Price.  “I look forward to the upcoming session where my focus will be to bring more jobs to Indiana and expand educational opportunities for our youth.” 
 
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.


“I want to continue the good work that has already been done to make Indiana the economic envy of the country,” said Rep. Price. “We have seen more private sector jobs coming to our state than any of our neighbors because Indiana is focused on building an environment where small businesses can flourish. Crafting a balanced budget, focusing on educational opportunities and creating an environment for job creation are my top priorities.”
