EDITOR’S NOTE: Please include the following statement from State Representative Bob Heaton (R-Terre Haute) in your coverage of House Enrolled Act 1001, the state’s biennial budget, which passed out of the General Assembly:

STATEHOUSE - “I was proud to support and help pass our state’s biennial budget, which appropriates $101.5M in capital construction funds to Indiana State University. This is a historic high in state funding for the University and will be used for two high priority projects; the renovations of the Hulman Center and the Life Sciences building. These funds are crucial to the growth of this university and benefits the entire Wabash Valley.

“Along with being honestly balanced, almost two-thirds of the budget is dedicated to K-12 and higher education, so I am pleased that we were able to increase that investment, benefiting students and teachers alike.”
