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 Mike Speedy (R-Indianapolis) was reelected to represent House District 90, which now includes portions of Marion County.

“I am humbled to continue serving my community at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Speedy. “We must continue to keep our focus on education and jobs in order to create a stronger economic environment. Bridging the gap to more closely align the Hoosier workforce’s skills with available jobs will help grow our state’s economy and lower unemployment.” 
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.
