Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of a new ranking released by U.S. News and World Report putting Indiana at the top of the list for best states for government:
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 28, 2017) – “Through many years of responsible, conservative leadership in Indiana, we have been able to streamline government operations, improve services and significantly enhance transparency for Hoosier taxpayers. A leaner, more efficient state government has led to a decade of honestly balanced budgets, healthy reserves, fully funded pension liabilities and a AAA credit rating. With a strong fiscal foundation, Indiana has consistently been in the national spotlight for its outstanding business climate, resulting in record job creation and more Hoosiers working than ever before. Today’s report listing Indiana at the top of the best states for government confirms we are on the right track and I will work hard to continue moving Indiana forward.”
