Bauer Chosen as Speaker of Indiana House

With Democratic control of the Indiana House next session, B. Patrick Bauer has been chosen, once again as the Speaker of the House.

House Democrats gained at least a 51 to 49 majority in Tuesday's election.

Bauer says Democrats will seek more money for schools and a nonbinding statewide referendum to gauge public opinion on Daylight-Saving Time.

"I believe that we'll try to have a referendum on that, have the views of the people. We've said that one of the things that we thought was to listen to the people, and I think they need a little improving on that. And we'd like to improve that and I’ll think we'll try for a referendum, on the direction the people would like to have in that area," explains Representative B. Patrick Bauer.

Bauer also says he will work with the Republican Senate and Republican Governor Mitch Daniels to tackle tough issues facing the state.
