BEDFORD, Ind. (AP) - An attorney and state representative from southwest Indiana has announced he’ll run for state Senate.

Rep. Eric Koch (cook), a Republican from Bedford, announced he’s seeking the seat of Sen. Brent Steele of Bedford, who plans to retire at the end of his term in 2016.

Koch is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Indiana University School of Law.

The Citizens Action Coalition and other groups have gone to court seeking Koch’s correspondence with utility companies regarding a solar energy bill. The Indiana Supreme Court has agreed to hear the plaintiff’s appeal after a lower court dismissed the case.

The retiring Steele is 68. He served in the Indiana House from 1994 to 2002 before being appointed to the state Senate.
