WASHINGTON – Following Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma’s resignation announcement today, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) released the following statement thanking Speaker Bosma for his outstanding service to his state and for his longtime leadership with the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC), a caucus of the RSLC.
“Speaker Bosma has been a source of strength
for the RSLC for many years, and we are deeply grateful to have him as a part
of this team,” said Austin
Chambers, RSLC President. “He has dedicated countless hours to
making sure state Republicans have the resources they need to win up-and-down
the ballot, and our Party – at every level – is better off because of his hard
work. We would like to thank Speaker Bosma for his leadership, and we look
forward to continuing to fight alongside him in this all-important
Speaker Bosma was first elected to the Indiana House of Representatives in 1986 and has served as the chamber’s Speaker in six nonconsecutive terms (2004-2006 and 2010-present), and has been a key partner of the RSLC in the two decades since the committee’s inception. He is the longest-serving speaker in state history. Notable policy accomplishments include passing a historic 20-year, fully funded roads plan, cutting or eliminating 14 taxes in the last 15 years, passing property tax reform and right-to-work, and empowering parents through implementing and expanding school choice. Brian and Cheryl Bosma have been married for 37 years and are the proud parents of Allison and Chris. Brian is also the founding director of Bosma Industries for the Blind, which employs over 125 blind and visually impaired Hoosiers statewide.
