Bosma resigning early from LegislatureJuly 20, 2020
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Former Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma announced Friday he will formally resign from the Legislature at the end of July.
Bosma stepped down as the House leader in March after saying months earlier that he wouldn’t seek reelection in 2020 after 34 years as a lawmaker. The Republican is the longest-serving House speaker in state history with 12 years total in the position.
His term runs until the November election and a temporary replacement can be picked by Republican precinct committee members in his district that covers the northeastern corner of Indianapolis and nearby sections of Hamilton and Hancock counties.
Bosma, who's an Indianapolis attorney, said he would remain involved in politics as national chairman of the Washington-based Republican Legislative Campaign Committee.
Republican Todd Huston of Fishers replaced Bosma in the powerful House position that largely controls which proposals are considered and appoints leaders of its some two dozen committees that review legislation.
