STATEHOUSE - "I am encouraged with today's announcement by Governor Daniels, Speaker Bosma, and Senate President Long to add an additional $150 million in funding for education. This includes funding full-day kindergarten in every school district across the state. While other states are proposing cuts in K-12 education, we proposed a balanced budget that kept funding at current levels, and now we are increasing that funding.

"I have fought hard in the statehouse for fair education funding, and will continue to do so as your State Representative. Our children and grandchildren deserve the best education we can provide them, and as our economy continues to strengthen here in Indiana, we can continue to strengthen resources that are available all Hoosiers."
