The outgoing Republican leader of the Indiana Senate is taking a new job at a high-power law firm.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long of Fort Wayne joined Indianapolis-based Ice Miller LP as a partner on Friday. He is joining the firm's public affairs wing.
The firm says he will focus on growing Ice Miller's presence beyond its anchor offices in Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Washington, D.C.
Long has been the Senate's leader since 2006 and was first elected to the chamber 22 years ago.
Republicans hold a 41-9 majority in the Senate and those GOP members will formally pick the next leader this fall.
