As speaker of the 118th General Assembly, Bosma opened House floor proceedings and House committee meetings to all Hoosiers via the Internet.

During the last session, Speaker Bosma helped work to create a budget with fiscal integrity, expand educational opportunities and provide more opportunities for job creation by addressing the skills gap.

In his private life, Brian is a partner with the law firm of Kroger, Gardis and Regas, focusing his practice in the areas of local government and environmental law. He was a founding director of Bosma Industries for the Blind Inc., which today employs more than 85 blind and visually impaired Hoosiers in Central Indiana.
