U.S. REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 4

Todd Rokita - R

Rokita

Todd Rokita is the Representative for Indiana’s Fourth Congressional District. During his first term in Congress, Rep. Rokita has been working to change the culture of spending, debt, and bureaucracy in Washington, to ensure that the children of tomorrow will inherit a better country.

Rep. Rokita was elected to Congress in 2010 and began his service in January of 2011. As Indiana’s Secretary of State from 2003-10, he redefined and modernized the office in order to provide Hoosier businesses, individuals, and investors with a better return on their state government.

Even as an elected statewide official, Rokita ran his office on the same budget used in 1987, unadjusted for inflation. He was also an accomplished leader in nationwide election reforms, such as his efforts to implement Indiana’s voter ID law. Indiana’s law was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008.

Congressman Rokita will continue working to bring Hoosier reforms to Washington, D.C., focusing on fixing America’s debt crisis through common-sense changes to all parts of federal government.

He has served on the House Budget Committee with Chairman Paul Ryan, helping to craft the 2012 and ‘13 House budgets, “The Path to Prosperity.” Through his work on the budget committee, Rep. Rokita has shown his commitment to championing limited government, constitutionalism, and free enterprise.
