(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Former House Speaker Brian Bosma officially submitted his letter of resignation.

Bosma, the longest-serving speaker in Indiana history, will officially retire on July 31.

Bosma was first elected Indiana House Speaker in 2004 where he served until 2006. He then returned again in 2011 and has served until the present day.

During his time as speaker, Bosma passed a historic 20-year, fully funded road plans, 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.

“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. “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."

The following statement was released by Todd Hutson, House Speaker:

 "Indiana's history is filled with strong leaders who shaped lasting, meaningful policy to make our great state what it is today, and Speaker Bosma is among those Hoosiers. Whether it was protecting homeowners by constitutionally capping property taxes or ensuring all children have opportunities for a quality education, he's been an integral part of so many game-changing reforms. We will certainly miss his experience at the Statehouse. I am thankful for our friendship, and I wish him and his wife, Cheryl, the very best moving forward."
