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. Steve Davisson (R- Salem) was sworn in and represents House District 73, which now includes portions of Washington, Orange, Lawrence, Jackson, Clark and Harrison counties.
“It is an honor to continue to represent my community,” said Rep. Davisson. “I am eager to start session, where the focus will be getting our Hoosiers back to work and making Indiana better for generations to come. It is imperative that we continue to increase the educational support to bridge the skills gap so future generations can be ready to meet the jobs of tomorrow.”
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 look forward to serving District 73 and am confident that if we keep prioritizing the economy and education, Indiana will continue to outpace the nation in job growth,” said Rep. Davisson.
