STATEHOUSE (Feb. 12, 2021) – "Indiana's track record of fiscal responsibility and commitment to maintaining strong reserves continue to buffer us from the economic impacts of the pandemic, and we're recovering quicker and stronger than most other states. This two-year budget proposal lives within our means, while investing in opportunities that will help Indiana bounce back stronger than ever before. We're substantially increasing funding for our K-12 public schools, improving access to reliable, affordable broadband, and helping our small-business owners."
