[r63] Rep. Messmer remarks on State of the State address

Posted by: Zach Weismiller  | Tuesday, January 10, 2012

“Since Gov. Daniels took office in 2005, his vision and plans to create a prosperous and stronger state for all Hoosiers have been very successful.  One of his biggest accomplishments that has directly benefited our community is the extension of I-69 that will better connect local businesses, including Crane Naval Base, to Evansville and Indianapolis. Building the extension has created hundreds of jobs for Hoosiers and, upon its completion, will continue to provide a great boost to our economy.

“Gov. Daniels has been able to execute all of his plans without raising taxes on Hoosiers, which is something many states in the nation have not been able to do. Through the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, we have also been able to create more than 140,000 jobs and those businesses have invested $27.9 billion in their Indiana operations. Indiana is in great shape fiscally and continues to lead the nation in job creation. I applaud Gov. Daniels on his continued commitment to Hoosiers and his work which has allowed Indiana to lead the nation in so many respects.”
