INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republican legislators have selected State Rep. Todd Huston as their pick to become the next leader of the Indiana House.

Huston won Monday’s private vote that was held two weeks after longtime House Speaker Brian Bosma announced he would retire after the 2020 legislative session.

Huston is from the Indianapolis suburb of Fishers and was first elected to the Legislature in 2012. He led the House budget-writing committee this past year. Huston is a senior vice president of the College Board, the company that administers the SAT college admissions test, and previously was chief of staff for Republican former state schools superintendent Tony Bennett.

Bosma says he’ll work closely with Huston during the upcoming session. Huston will take over GOP caucus leadership heading into the November 2020 election.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republican legislators are deciding their pick as the next leader of the Indiana House.

The private vote Monday among House Republicans comes after longtime House Speaker Brian Bosma announced two weeks ago that he would retire after the 2020 legislative session.

Bosma says he’ll work with the successor during the upcoming session and that person will take over GOP caucus leadership heading into the November 2020 election when all 100 House seats will be on the ballot.

Rep. Todd Huston of Fishers is considered a top candidate to replace Bosma. Huston was first elected to the Legislature in 2012 and led the House budget-writing committee this past year. He previously was chief of staff for Republican former state schools superintendent Tony Bennett.
