Rep. Friend: Supporting small businesses, more jobs

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.  

State Representative Bill Friend (R-Macy) was re-elected to represent House District 23, which now includes most of Miami County and portions of Fulton and Cass counties. He gave the nomination speech for Representative Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) to be the Speaker of the House. 

“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).

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 continued effort to propel Indiana to be a state where Hoosiers have the ability to own their American Dream.

“It’s an honor and privilege to represent my community at the Statehouse,” said. Rep. Friend. “Indiana is the leading state, in not only the Midwest but the country, for private sector job growth. We need to continue to build momentum on our recent accolades and distinctions to grow the private sector, creating more jobs for Hoosiers.

“Promoting and supporting small businesses will create more jobs for Hoosiers. Small businesses are the backbone of the private sector, hiring a majority of the Hoosier workforce. It’s critical that we continue to make Indiana’s economic climate the most conducive for job growth and expansion to attract more companies to our state.”
