“Last night, I was pleased to see the governor reiterate his commitment to a strong Indiana economy. As a small business owner, I have experienced firsthand the hardships facing business across our state – primarily the lack of qualified workers and an excess of red tape. In his speech, the governor addressed both of these issues.

“Last session, with Governor Pence’s support, I coauthored legislation creating the Indiana Career Council. This council was enacted to coordinate and align Indiana’s fragmented workforce development system. This session, I am eager to continue to work with the governor to address the skills gap in Indiana and prepare our workforce for current and future job opportunities. I commend the governor on his tireless efforts to make Indiana one of the most business-friendly states in the nation, and I thank him for his leadership.”
