INDIANAPOLIS – Former Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, will resign from his position as state representative, effective at the end of the month.

Last year, Bosma announced he would step down as Speaker and not run for reelection.

He served as Speaker of the House from 2004-2006 and 2010-2020 and is the longest-serving Speaker in state history.

“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,” Bosma said in a statement. “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."

House District 88 is made up of parts of Marion County, Hamilton County and Hancock County.

Bosma served as a representative for 34 years. He will leave office on July 31.
