Entry Description

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 Representative Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) was reelected to represent House District 39, which includes a large portion of Clay Township, as well as the city of Carmel.

“We’ve taken a lot of positive steps toward job growth for Hoosiers in recent years,” said Rep. Torr. “I am honored to continue serving my community, and I am looking forward to all that will be accomplished for Indiana in the upcoming session.”

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.

“We need to continue getting Hoosiers back to work so they can provide for their families,” said Rep. Torr. “Our goal this session is to help equip Hoosiers with the tools they need to make that happen. Hoosiers need to be able to meet the demands of today’s job market, which is why we will be putting such a big focus on education. I am excited to see what we will accomplish in the upcoming session.”
