Indiana Commerce Secretary Nate Feltman said Thursday he likely will return to practicing law and become involved in business after leaving the post at the end of the month.

Feltman said he plans to stay in Indianapolis, though he wouldn't divulge details of his plans.

"This is a place my family and friends live," the 38-year-old Mishawaka native said.

In an announcement Thursday, Gov. Mitch Daniels said Feltman would be replaced by Family and Social Services Administration chief Mitch Roob.

Feltman was vice president of Indiana Economic Development Corp. before being named to take over the private non-profit two years ago.
