House Republicans Discussing Turner’s Future

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ House Republicans are expected to meet next week to decide whether action should be taken against House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner.
 
Turner successfully fought legislation earlier this year that would have halted construction of new nursing homes. The measure would have cost his family nursing home business millions in potential profits. 


The House Ethics Committee cleared him of wrongdoing in April but urged lawmakers to strengthen the disclosure rules for public officials. 

 
Turner's company also received $345,000 in state tax credits for a Terre Haute project.
 
Multiple House Republicans told The Associated Press that their caucus plans to meet Monday to discuss Turner's actions. The members spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting is private and lawmakers sometimes face sanctions for talking about discussions that occur during caucus.</div>
