Educating the next generation of Hoosiers is critical to our state's future. Indiana continues to prioritize our students and schools, with half of our state budget dedicated to K-12 education. In our recently passed state budget, lawmakers invested a historic $1.9 billion in new money for K-12 education over the next two years, which includes $600 million annually to raise teacher salaries.

March is International Women's Month, and a time to reflect on the many contributions made by women throughout the world while looking to the future to ensure we are charting a path for the generations to come. From Mary Wright Sewall, a suffragist who helped lead the fight for women's rights on a national and international level, to Helen Murray Free, a chemist who revolutionized self-testing systems for diabetes and other diseases, Indiana's history is full of trailblazers. In 2021, Hoosier women are still moving our state in the right direction.
The legislative session is at the halfway point, and state lawmakers are making progress on several bills supporting Hoosiers. A lot of policy discussions center on ensuring our state bounces back from the pandemic stronger than before, whether it be through improving Hoosier health, helping struggling small businesses or supporting Hoosier workers. We're also focused on better preparing students for the workforce, which is why I am co-authoring two bills helping young Hoosiers gain the needed skills for higher-paying, in-demand jobs.
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 4, 2021) – The Indiana House of Representatives on Tuesday advanced legislation establishing the Hoosier Hospitality Small Business Restart Grant Program, which would support Indiana's jobs and economy, according to state lawmakers representing Johnson County.
Small businesses sponsor our local sports teams, host fundraisers for community members, provide jobs and help drive Indiana's economy. Over the last year, many have had to pivot and adapt to challenges brought on by the pandemic, and some need additional support to keep their doors open. At the Statehouse, we are working on legislation that would build on the state's existing efforts to support Hoosier jobs and our employers.
STATEHOUSE (Jan. 26, 2021) – The Indiana House of Representatives voted today in support of legislation to fully fund all K-12 public school students for the 2020-21 school year, regardless of whether students attended classes in-person or virtually due to COVID-19.
As the General Assembly wrapped up the second week of the legislative session, we are working diligently on bills addressing issues that matter most to Hoosiers. Hearing from and safely meeting with constituents, fellow lawmakers and stakeholders about a number of topics helps guide me as I work hard on behalf of House District 58. Among my key priorities is to continue supporting our schools as they navigate obstacles resulting from the pandemic.
