Gov. Holcomb to Visit Newburgh for Signing of 'Play for Kate' Law

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb will be paying a visit to Sharon Elementary on June 5 for the ceremonial signing of the “Play for Kate" bill into law.

The “Play for Kate" bill, HEA 1200, makes helmets a requirement for ATV riders under the age of 18.

The legislation is named after 11-year-old Kate Bruggenschmidt of Warrick County.

Kate's mother Ashlee Bruggenschmidt is the Principal at Sharon Elementary School.

Her mother has testified several times at the statehouse in support of the bill.

On Friday, Ashlee Bruggenschmidt sent this email out to faculty at Sharon Elementary:

“Hi all. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that on June 5th at 9:30 a.m. CST Gov. Holcomb will be at Sharon Elementary School to do the ceremonial signing of HEA 1200. This of course is an important event for me and our family, but also for our school and community. It isn’t very often the governor comes to Newburgh, IN and visits our school. Mr. Stucker has already stated that our gym floor will be ready to go on this date (resurfacing complete). So the gym will be closed on June 4th and 5th in preparation for the ceremonial signing. There will be lots of media in and around the building on this date also. The signing will be open to the community.

Thanks for everyone’s help and support during this process!
Ashlee”
