STATEHOUSE-Please include the following statement from Rep. Doug Gutwein (R-Francesville) in your coverage of Governor Daniels' State of the State address:
"The speech given tonight by Governor Daniels gave Hoosiers hope for a better future," said Rep. Gutwein. "He assured the citizens of this state that while things across this nation are extremely difficult, Indiana is headed in the right direction. One goal is simple: don't raise Hoosiers' taxes one single penny, find ways to bring new businesses and jobs to the state and continue to focus on education. If we can accomplish these things, and I certainly believe we can, we're going to come out of these tough times ahead of other states."
