Floyd Dale Grubb is a Democratic member of the Indiana House of Representatives, representing the 42nd District since 1988. He is currently Democratic Caucus Chair.

Born in Fountain County, Indiana, Dale is the son of William H. Grubb, a farmer in Covington, Indiana and Laveda B. Davis. The family is a descendant of John Grubb who came to the Delaware Valley from Cornwall in 1677 and served in the Pennsylvania Colonial Assembly. In 1965, Dale also demonstrated an early interest in politics when he became a page in the Indiana Assembly. Two years later, he was elected as a democratic precinct captain. He continued his interest in public issues while majoring in agricultural economics at Purdue. After graduation, he joined the Indiana Air Force Reserves and trained as a nurse. Dale started his business career at a bank in Michigan City, Indiana, but returned to the Covington farm in 1974. He also established a grain and commodity brokerage in 1980.[1]

In 1988, the local Assembly seat became vacant and Dale was elected that November. Dale has been a leading advocate for agricultural interests and was the prime sponsor of organ donor legislation. He is also noted for his strong opposition to eastern daylight savings time that causes serious problems in western Indiana because of its proximity to Illinois, which is in the central time zone. After only six years in office, Assembly democrats elected Grubb as their leader. While the registration in his district is evenly divided, Dale consistently receives over 60% of the votes.[1]
