Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) had the following statement regarding the swearing in of Speaker Todd Huston:

“I want to congratulate Speaker Huston on his exciting new role. I know we will have the opportunity to work closely in coming sessions, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together. Speaker Huston and I may not always agree on the same issues, but I’m certain that he will work to do what he thinks is best for our state. In the end, that’s what Hoosiers sent us here to do: to come together and make Indiana the best state in the U.S.”
