Senate President Pro Tem David Long announced Tuesday he will retire after 22 years in the chamber.
Standing beside his wife Melissa, who recently retired herself, Long (R-Fort Wayne) said he’s stepping down in November “for the right reasons.”
“I’ve seen a lot of things accomplished that I hoped to see done," Long says. "I feel like the Senate’s in good hands with this new generation.”
Long points to Right to Work, school vouchers, property tax caps, and tax cuts as notable accomplishments.
