State Senator to speak for Republican Club

Friday, May 15, 2009

Senator Richard Bray
State Senator Richard Bray (R-Martinsville), will speak in Clay County at 7 p.m., Monday, through the Clay County Republican Club.

The event will take place at the Clay County Senior Center, 120 S. Franklin St., Brazil. The public is invited to attend.

Bray will speak about current issues facing state residents.

There will also be an opportunity for people to ask questions. In the past legislative session, Bray's goals were to focus on helping the state maintain a balanced budget, protecting education funding, permanently capping property taxes and continuing job creation efforts.

Bray will share information about the accomplishments during the past session and the work still to be done.

The legislative session ended April 30, but the Indiana General Assembly failed to pass a new state budget by the deadline for ending the regular session.

Lawmakers will be called back this summer for a special session since the current budget expires at the end of the fiscal year June 30.

Bray is now in his fifth term representing the people of District 37 in the Indiana Senate.

He was reelected by residents of Clay, Johnson, Monroe, Morgan, Owen and Putnam counties in the last general election.

He serves as the chair of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

He also serves on five other committees, including Energy and Environmental Affairs, Ethics, Appointments and Claims, Corrections, Civil and Criminal Maters and Rules and Legislative Procedures.
