(STATEHOUSE) Feb. 20, 2009 - State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) offered the following statement about House Bill 1001, the budget bill:
"We are spending way too much money at a time we shouldn't be spending. We are in a tough economic climate and Hoosier families are struggling. Hoosier taxpayers are controlling their spending to survive and the state must follow suit.
"If we are spending a surplus down to a four-day plan, then that is not being responsible to our Hoosier taxpayers."
