Rep. Behning says the focus is 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 and 5 new Democrats 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 Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) was reelected to represent the new House District 91, which now includes portions of Marion and Hendricks counties.
“I am honored and humbled to represent our community at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Behning. “I will continue to focus on what is best for Hoosier families, which starts with an excellent education system that creates leaders in the classroom and leaders in life.”
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.
“Over the past few years, Indiana has lead the way towards a prosperous future through the legislation we have passed. We must continue to cultivate an environment where the economy can thrive, and continue the building of a quality education system that gives every Hoosier child an equal opportunity to construct their own American Dream,” said Rep. Behning.
