Reps. Tony Cook and Greg Beumer tell us about the Hoosier Homestead Awards Program, which recognizes farms that have been owned and maintained by the same family for 100 years or more.
“As the Speaker of the Indiana House, I announced some lofty goals for this year’s short legislative session on Organization Day last November. Tackling road and bridge funding issues, protecting and promoting Indiana’s teachers and students, curbing our state’s illegal drug epidemic and replacing the ISTEP test all topped the list. And I made one more pledge – in this season of endless political sniping, the Indiana House would conduct itself in a civil, inclusive and bipartisan fashion. I am pleased to state that Hoosiers are winners on virtually each of these counts.” -Speaker Brian Bosma
