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 Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) was reelected to represent House District 68, which now includes all of Union County and portions of Dearborn and Franklin counties.

“For the past two years, representing my community in the General Assembly has been a great honor,” said Rep. McMillin. “Over the next two years, I will continue to work with my colleagues and support legislation that will safeguard our state’s future and strengthen its economy specifically Southeastern Indiana. Indiana has received national recognition as a top state to do business, and it is imperative that we continue to incentivize and promote job creation through small business owners as they employ thousands of Hoosiers in our district and across the state.”

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.

“Chances for success in life are closely tied, but certainly not limited to the education system that we are a product of. I’m focused on making sure that every student has the best chance to succeed right here in Indiana, and it starts with having the right tools available for our teachers and the right options for Hoosier families,” said. Rep. McMillin. “Our most important investment in Indiana’s future is the education system.  We must equip students with the necessary skills required to succeed once they enter the workforce.  With a strong foundation in areas such as reading, writing, arithmetic and speech, we will better enable our future leaders and job creators to prosper.”
