Indiana House Judiciary chairman Jerry Torr to retire after nearly 3 decades

Longtime state Rep. Jerry Torr will not seek reelection next year to his central Indiana seat and will retire at the end of his current term after 28 years in the Indiana House, he announced Tuesday.

Torr authored legislation in 2012 that made Indiana a so-called right-to-work state by banning unions from collecting mandatory fees from workers. In 2005, he sponsored legislation that moved all of Indiana’s 92 counties to daylight saving time for the first time since most of the state opted out under state and federal legislation passed in the early 1970s.
