Indiana Senate and House Republicans have elected their respective leadership teams for the upcoming session of the General Assembly. Representative Brian Bosma (R-88) has been re-elected to a fifth term as Speaker of the House and Senator David Long (R-16) has been re-elected as President Pro Tempore, a position he has held since 2006.
Also in the House, Rep. Kathy Kreag Richardson (R-29) has been elected to her fifth term as Majority Caucus Chair, while Rep. Matt Lehman (R-79) has been elected to his second term as Majority Floor Leader.
"We are ready to move past this unprecedented election season and work on our legislative agenda to help lead Indiana forward," said Bosma. "We have a strong leadership team in place and I look forward to working with our new members, and the new governor and his team. This session, we will keep our focus on continued fiscal integrity, a long-term infrastructure funding plan, and teacher and student focused education opportunities.”
The Indiana Senate Majority Caucus also re-elected Sen. Jim Merritt (R-31) as Majority Caucus Chairman, a position he has held since 2004.
