Statement by Brad Chambers on the Conclusion of the 2024 Legislative Session

INDIANAPOLIS (Mar. 9, 2024) – Republican gubernatorial candidate and former Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers today released the following statement on last night’s conclusion of the 2024 legislative session:

“I’m thankful for the legislature’s work this session and encouraged by the important progress made on many of the issues I hear about talking with countless Hoosiers on the road,” stated Chambers. “More third graders will now be set up for a lifetime of success; child care will be more affordable and accessible; children will be protected from the harms of unfettered access to adult content; farmland and critical infrastructure will stay out of our adversaries’ hands; and our Jewish community will know hate against them will not be tolerated.”

“There remains more work to do, and as Indiana’s next governor, I’ll be ready to work alongside the legislature to continue this progress and implement our plans for an even better Indiana,” he added.
