Hoosiers across Indiana, including in Fishers, rely on safe and reliable roads as an essential resource to live out their daily lives, which is why communities must make crucial road repairs sooner rather than later. To help fuel those projects, Indiana increased transportation funding 76 percent since 2016, with more than $850 million dedicated to roads just this year.
The Centers for Disease Control is investigating more than 1,000 lung injury cases and 18 deaths across the country, including in Indiana. That is because all those reported patients have a history of using e-cigarettes. In the Hoosier state, e-cigarette use – commonly known as “vaping” – has skyrocketed almost 400% over the past six years. The majority of those users are between the ages of 18 and 34 years old. This data is alarming and serves as a wakeup call that more needs to be done to make sure fewer young people choose to use e-cigarettes or vapes.
STATEHOUSE (Aug. 29, 2019) – “As a father of two teenagers, it is disturbing that we are seeing exponentially more young Hoosiers choosing to vape. I support the governor and the department of health’s comprehensive strategy to raise awareness about the dangers of vaping and point Hoosiers in the right direction to quit. I also look forward to supporting legislative action next year aimed at addressing this issue.”
“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.”
STATEHOUSE (April 29, 2019) — “Today’s signing reflects our ongoing commitment to schools, workforce programs, veterans and the safety of Hoosier children. Our $34 billion balanced biennial budget is the culmination of many months of hard work. We funded the state’s priorities, protecting Indiana’s healthy reserves and valuable AAA credit rating without straining our finances or burdening future generations with debt.”
STATEHOUSE (April 24, 2019) – Indiana lawmakers successfully passed Indiana’s next two-year state budget, which includes a historic investment in K-12 public education, according to State Rep. Todd Huston (R-Fishers) and State Sen. Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen).
“This structurally balanced budget is a reflection of collaboration and extensive work on all sides, and we are confident it covers the state’s most pressing needs while safeguarding vital reserves. Our proposal strengthens our commitment to students and teachers with record increases to education, fully funds the Department of Child Services, and makes critical investments into workforce development. We are ready to get this fiscally sound budget over the finish line on behalf of all Hoosiers.”

Max is currently a law student at the Indiana University McKinney School of Law, and earned bachelor’s degrees in English and public policy from Indiana University Bloomington. As a policy intern, he analyzes amendments and bills, prepares committee reports for legislators, researches Indiana Code and is a bill reader on the House Floor.

STATEHOUSE (March 21, 2019) – State Rep. Todd Huston (R-Fishers) Tuesday at the Statehouse honored local We the People teams with a resolution recognizing their top-place finish in the 2018-2019 state competition.
In December, teams from Hamilton Southeastern High School and Fishers Junior High School won the We the People state championship in the high school and middle school competitions, respectively.
STATEHOUSE (March 11, 2019) — “Based on the corrected data from the Indiana Department of Education, the House proposed school funding formula has been updated and provides a better estimate of tuition support for each school corporation. The reduction in the statewide complexity index aligns with the latest certified data showing fewer Hoosier families are enrolled in public assistance.”
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 25, 2019) — “The House budget proposal funds Indiana’s vital services and addresses top priorities while remaining fiscally responsible and maintaining healthy reserves. We kept our commitment to educators and Hoosier children by increasing funding for education, school safety and the Department of Child Services. This is a strong start, and I look forward to working on this budget with our Senate colleagues.”

House Bill 1003 would establish clear spending goals to help local school districts prioritize teacher pay. Teacher pay decisions are made at the local level through collective bargaining and budget decisions. Huston said the proposal sets a target for public schools to make every reasonable effort to ensure that 85 percent of their state funds are going to the classroom.
“Governor Holcomb’s proposed two-year state budget is responsibly balanced based upon the revenue forecast and reflects many of our shared priorities, including increasing funding for Hoosier schools. The state’s latest fiscal outlook confirms Indiana’s economy is running strong, and we will continue working with Governor Holcomb and our counterparts in the Senate to keep the momentum going.”

I look forward to continuing to build on these efforts.”
