STATEHOUSE-"My first session was full of unprecedented challenges and difficult decisions, but I was up to the task. Even after losing more than five weeks during session, we accomplished a tremendous amount on behalf of all Hoosiers.
"In November, I made a promise to strengthen Indiana. We passed legislation that will encourage job creation as businesses relocate and expand in Indiana. We passed a balanced budget without increasing taxes. We also restored some funding to education that will be used to expand full-day kindergarten to every school district in the state.
"Overall, I feel this was a successful session. We worked hard to make sure Indiana continues to prosper."
