GOP Lawmakers Priorities

Indiana House Republicans plan to spend the 2015 session seeking changes in how the state funds its schools and rewriting their own ethics rules. House Speaker Brian Bosma says they will likely hold off on any major tax changes sought by Governor Pence. Bosma and House Republicans unveiled their legislative priorities, now, less than three weeks before voters head to the polls to decide if the GOP should keep its supermajority in the House. The focus on ethics follows a scandal involving Republican House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner. Increased funding for victims of domestic violence and police protection also will be priorities.
