No bills to reduce Ritz’s power moving through Kruse’s committee, he says

Senate Education and Career Development Committee Chairman Dennis Kruse, R-Auburn, put the kibosh on the notion that any Senate bills coming out of his committee would reduce the strength of new Democratic state Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz.

“We’re not going to hear any bills here in the Senate bills that reflect in any way against our new superintendent. She has been doing an excellent job so far and getting along with us very well, and I will continue to work with her the best I can,” Kruse said.

Ritz ousted Republican Tony Bennett in November’s election.

One thought on “No bills to reduce Ritz’s power moving through Kruse’s committee, he says

  1. This is a great move by Sen. Kruse. I have been concerned that other bills that have been introduced will try to circumvent the 1.4 million voters who elected Glenda Ritz. I have been very worried about the democratic election process in Indiana. This is also a positive sign of some common sense in the legislature.
