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. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) was sworn in as a new member of the House Republicans and represents House District 60, which now includes portions of Morgan and Monroe counties
“I am humbled and eager to begin my work at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Mayfield. “I am looking forward to making job creation and education a priority for the session in order to better Indiana. With our national debt equating to more than $50,000 for every man, woman and child in the U.S., Indiana must remain fiscally solvent by passing a balanced budget.
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 my state and neighbors in District 60 and hope to continue the efforts of building an economic environment that attracts high quality jobs to Indiana,” said Rep. Mayfield.
