“Indiana’s surge in revenue is proof that our low tax, pro-business environment and strong record of fiscal responsibility continues to pay dividends for Hoosier taxpayers. I strongly support the governor’s prudent recommendation to use this one-time money to pay cash for much-needed capital projects, which would otherwise require debt financing. This proposal could save over $100 million in interest payments over the next 20 years and free up those funds for important priorities like education and child protection. We look forward to working with Governor Holcomb in the coming months as we finalize plans for the 2020 session.”

Specific projects range from resurfacing crumbling roads and installing traffic signals to improve safety.

Despite this growth, it’s important to remain cautious because there is always uncertainty when it comes to the economy. As the Indiana General Assembly nears the end of the 2017 legislative session, we will reflect on today’s revenue forecast as we finalize the next two-year state budget and invest in our priorities, including K-12 education and our roads.”
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 15, 2017) — State Rep. Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) released the House Republican state budget proposal today to the House Committee on Ways and Means.
