Governor Pence Declares 2016 Legislative Session a Win for Indiana
Start Date: 3/10/2016Start Time: 12:00 AM

Entry Description

Indianapolis – As the Indiana General Assembly concludes its work for the 2016 legislative session in which a number of legislative achievements were passed, Governor Pence issued the following statement:

 

“The 2016 session of the Indiana General Assembly was a win for Indiana.

 

“In this session, our legislature approved more than one billion dollars to improve state and local roads without raising taxes and fully funded economic development projects improving the quality of life in regions across our state.

 

“We also put education and teachers first. In this session of the General Assembly, we took a step back from ISTEP and began a process to review standardized testing in Indiana, ensured our schools and teachers were treated fairly and created the Hoosier Educators Scholarship Program to encourage more Hoosiers to pursue a career in teaching.

 

“Most importantly, we also took firm steps toward combating the scourge of drug abuse in Indiana by enacting tougher penalties on drug dealers and expanding access to treatment and life-saving measures for those caught in the grip of addiction.

 

“These were the priorities of this administration in this session, and I’m grateful to President Pro Tem Senator David Long, Speaker of the House Brian Bosma and members of the Indiana General Assembly for working with our administration to advance these important measures that will strengthen our economy, improve our schools and combat the scourge of drug abuse in our state.”
