STATEHOUSE- “I was pleased to hear the Governor outline some of the same goals we prioritized this session in his State of the State Address. As a member of Ways and Means, I am particularly pleased that the governor supports our efforts to pass an honestly balanced budget, centered on education. It is imperative that we pass a budget that does not spend more than we bring in, so our economy can continue to outpace the nation in job growth.
“Governor Pence also stressed the importance of providing Hoosier students with the best education possible. Having a high quality education system is vitally important to our future which is why one of our goals is to fix the funding formula and look at ways we can raise the foundation level of spending to support students, parents and teachers alike.”
