When the General Assembly began its work last November, as speaker I pledged a session driven by five main issues: increased road funding, enhanced job training, early childhood education, fair business taxation and cutting government red tape. With the 118th General Assembly behind us, it i…
Representatives from throughout the state – Republican and Democrat – joined together this session to address issues at the forefront of Hoosier minds: maintaining our state’s fiscal integrity, spurring job creation and expanding education opportunities for every Hoosier family.
Hoosiers have the unique luxury of being the fiscal envy of the nation because of the sound policies of the last eight years. Rather than discussing which taxes to increase as they are in Kansas and other states, policymakers are talking about which tax to cut.
With the 2012 Indiana legislative session in the rearview mirror, the two-year work of the 117th General Assembly elected in November 2010 is complete. Despite unprecedented protests, boycotts and walkouts, Republican leaders continued our charge to "Keep calm and carry on" for Hoosier taxpa…

The November election placed the mantel of House leadership on our Democrat colleagues, with Republicans returning to the minority by the slimmest of margins. While our legislative role has changed, our goals remain the same. We will continue to push the legislative debate away from partisan…
