STATEHOUSE (June 13, 2019) – “This session, House Republicans delivered on our promise to strengthen our state’s commitment to educators and students. Along with providing a historic increase in education funding, we made significant progress to ensure more of those dollars flow directly to teachers with the passage of House Enrolled Act 1003. We also took important steps to provide educators with more career advancement opportunities and give much-needed support to new teachers. 

“After a top-to-bottom review of Indiana’s Department of Child Services, House and Senate lawmakers worked with Governor Holcomb to enact much-needed reforms to improve how we care for the state’s most vulnerable children. The job is not complete, but significant headway has been made with the passage of House Enrolled Act 1006 and the administrative improvements directed by the Governor.”
