Former House Speaker Brian Bosma is leaving the Statehouse earlier than expected.
Bosma announced Friday that he will leave office on July 31. He previously announced he would not run for re-election in November.
“After having the privilege of serving our state for more than 34 years, I am leaving with many friendships, experiences and memories – but even greater than all of those is my optimism for Indiana’s future. We have made tremendous strides in nearly every category, from our enviable fiscal health to our top-ranked infrastructure and business climate. While there is more work to do and new challenges ahead, Indiana is fortunate to have strong conservative leaders at the helm who can carry our momentum forward,” Bosma said in a statement.
The former Indiana Speaker of the House stepped down from the speakership in March. He was replaced by Rep. Todd Huston of Fishers.
