CARMEL -

Funeral services will be held Friday for an influential figure in Indiana economics for decades. Bill Styring served in roles including Indiana House Ways and Means Committee chief of staff, Indiana Budget Agency economist and senior fellow at the Washington D.C.-based think tank, the Hudson Institute, which used to be headquartered in Indianapolis. Styring was 72.

His experience also included eight years as chair of the Indiana Revenue Forecast Committee and the chair for public policy at the Indiana Policy Review Foundation. Styring was known as the "number guy" behind Governor Otis Bowen's 1973 property tax relief plan.

In a statement from Vice President Mike Pence, the former Indiana congressman and governor said "Bill will be missed but remembered for his life of humble service and commitment to economic freedom." Pence added "Bill leaves behind a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. His public service and contributions to conservative economic thought will live on."

A visitation at Flanner and Buchanan in Carmel is set for Friday November 10 from 11:00am to 1:00pm and the funeral service will follow.
