STATEHOUSE- Please include the following statement from Rep. Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) in your coverage of Governor Daniels' State of the State address:
"I agree with the governor in that the answer to weathering this recession is keeping taxes low and creating incentives for businesses to bring jobs to Indiana," said Rep. Dermody. "This recession has put the state in a difficult position. We've had to seriously consider where we are spending money and unfortunately we've had to make some tough cuts. I believe Indiana will be in a good position as a state going forward if we continue to keep our budget in line, continue fiscal responsibility and provide great opportunities to attract new businesses that will bring jobs to the state-ultimately turning Indiana into a leader in the nation."
