STATEHOUSE - Representative Dick Dodge (R-Pleasant Lake) released the following statement today in response to Gov. Mitch Daniels' State of the State address.
"Hoosier taxpayers are our number one priority. During these tough economic times, many Hoosier families are making difficult decisions. The state should be no different. We must do everything we can to keep families' hard earned money in their pockets and not raise or create taxes. We've continued to maintain fiscal restraint and also provide great opportunities to attract new employers, putting our state in a far better position than our neighbors. I agree with the governor that we must continue to create an atmosphere where Hoosier employers are able to succeed and grow jobs."
