Bob Bischoff seeks reelection
in District 68

Bob Bischoff announced he has filed his paperwork to seek re-election as 68th District Representative in the Indiana House.

“I’m so proud to represent my friends and neighbors in the Indiana House of Representatives in Indianapolis,” Bischoff said. “My priority going forward this session, and if my constituents give me another opportunity to represent them, will be on jobs and protecting the local riverboat revenue dollars our community has. Those funds are so important for local job creation, infrastructure improvements and educational opportunities. I’ve had to fight to keep those dollars in our community, with members of both parties, but my constituents can count on me to keep up that fight.”

Bischoff serves in the Indiana House of Representatives as Chairman of the Natural Resources committee and is a member of the Agriculture & Rural Development committee and also the Roads and Transportation committee.

Rep. Bischoff was distinguished last year with three major awards from groups, who recognized his outstanding service. He was named Legislator of the Year by all three, including: the Indiana Volunteer Firemen Association, the Soil and Water Conservation Districts, and the Conservation Alliance. “It’s such an honor to be recognized by these great groups,” Bischoff added.

Even though this is a short session going on now at the Statehouse, It’s been a busy session with several major pieces of legislation before the House. This session, Rep. Bischoff authored legislation to protect the right of law-abiding, permit-holding Hoosiers to carry their firearms in their vehicle. He voted for allowing Hoosiers to vote on adding a provision to the Constitution to cap property taxes. He has continued to be a strong supporter of kids and education. “We only have one time to educate children and we have to get it right that time,” Bischoff noted.

Bischoff is accessible and available to his constituents and will continue to be so. You can contact him at his home, the Statehouse at 1-800-382-9842 or email him at: “My job is to serve the residents of House District 68 and I’m so grateful to help in any way I can,” he concluded.

Bischoff is a member of the Indiana Farm Bureau, Knights of Columbus, Indiana Right to Life, North Dearborn Conservation Club, and St. Lawrence Church. He and his wife, Ardis, have a son, two daughters and are proud grandparents of seven.
