STATEHOUSE-Please include the following statement from Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) in your coverage of Governor Daniels' State of the State address:
"I do believe the governor's on the right track," said Rep. Eberhart. "What he said tonight was just what we needed to hear. We need to focus on job creation; legislation that improves the business climate that we have here in Indiana-attracting new businesses and encouraging the businesses that we do have in our state to expand and hire new workers. Indiana is really in a class by itself as far as the business climate we have. We're in a very good spot right now compared to many of our neighboring states and we need to build upon that momentum. We've pledged to Hoosiers that we will not raise their taxes and I support that 100 percent-allowing folks to keep more of what they earn while reducing the size of government."
