(STATEHOUSE) Feb. 20, 2009 - Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso) offered the following statement about House Bill 1001, the budget bill:

"It's a shame we were not able to reach a bipartisan agreement on this budget. The budget passed today is problematic in a number of areas, not the least of which is a lack of planning for the future and spending of the Indiana Check-up Plan Trust Fund as well as other essential reserves.

"I am confident that we can continue to work together with the Senate to achieve a responsible and balanced budget."
