Please include the following statement from Rep. Eberhart in your coverage of legislative action on these issues:
"It was critical for us to pass a budget that wisely spent taxpayer money to keep the state fiscally sound and to focus on creating jobs for unemployed Hoosiers," said Rep. Eberhart. "Unfortunately, the proposed budget spent way too much and was artificially balanced. To me, that was unacceptable."
"Hoosier businesses will be severely hurt by this fix the House Democrats rammed through," said Rep. Eberhart. "This will only force employers to increase payroll cuts and continue layoffs. It's not a fix; it's a fumble. Hoosiers deserve better."
