INDIANAPOLIS | House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, will miss most of the final month of the legislative session after undergoing emergency knee surgery.

Bosma spokeswoman Tory Flynn announced Tuesday surgery was required after doctors discovered an infection in the artificial knee Bosma had installed last summer.

She said Bosma, 55, expects to return to the chamber he's presided over since 2011 either late next week or during the week of April 21.

"Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he enters his road to recovery," Flynn said.

State Rep. Eric Turner, R-Cicero, will run the Republican-controlled chamber during Bosma's absence.

The Legislature is required by law to adjourn for the year on or before April 29.
