P. Eric Turner (b. December 22, 1951) is a Republican member of the Indiana House of Representatives, representing District 32 and serving as Speaker Pro Tempore. He was first elected to the chamber in 1994 and previously served a term from 1982 to 1986.

On September 19, 2014, Turner announced his impending resignation after the 2014 election. Turner served as State House Speaker Pro Tempore for six years prior to August 29, 2014, when House Speaker Brian Bosma (R) declared that Turner would not have a leadership position in November. Turner had been cleared of wrongdoing in an ethics investigation into his efforts in killing a bill that would have placed a moratorium on nursing home construction; while Indiana legislators are barred from voting on legislation in which a financial interest would be affected, pushing for a bill's passage or defeat is not disallowed. Turner has invested in Mainstreet Properties, which constructs nursing homes, and his son, Zeke, is CEO of HealthLease Properties, which was spun off from Mainstreet in 2012. Turner is due to take an associate trainer position with EQUIP, a Christian leadership training organization headquartered in Atlanta. Turner will remain on the November ballot.[1][2][3]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Indiana

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Indiana scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
