Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

State Rep. Bill Davis is resigning from the eastern Indiana seat he's held for nine years to take a job with Gov. Mike Pence's administration.

The Portland Republican announced Friday that he'll step down from his Statehouse seat as of Nov. 3 to become executive director of the state's Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

Davis currently represents House District 33, which covers Jay and Randolph counties and a portion of Delaware County. He's known among other things for co-authoring legislation that created the state's "In God We Trust" license plate.

Davis said in a statement that his time in the Indiana House has allowed him to play a role in several agricultural and economic initiatives. He said those experiences should be "a real asset in my new role."
