Gov. Pence delivers State of the State address

Jan 23, 2013

Fiscal restraint was the theme of Governor Mike Pence’s first State of the State address to the Indiana General Assembly. The Republican took to the podium with the goal of convincing legislators and Hoosiers across the state, that a 10% income tax cut is a fiscally responsible move.

Pence says since the state is bringing in more than it spends; it leave some of that money in Hoosiers’ pockets.

State revenues in November continued to surge above the most recent forecasts, putting the state on the road to another yearly surplus.  However, as lawmakers and the newly-elected governor prepare their budget proposals, this month’s upcoming revenue forecast is key.
