Perfect: Senate presents balanced budget

Indianapolis, In. — The Indiana Senate Republican caucus recently unveiled our budget proposal to fund state government for the next two years.

The proposal is balanced with a strong “rainy day” reserves. The budget also continues to support students and teachers with a $775 million increase in K-12 funding.

This week, my fellow senators and I defended a balanced budget by voting down $200 million in additional state spending offered in amendments to the state budget by the Democrats, which would have thrown our budget out of balance.

Keeping Indiana’s budget balanced means making tough decisions and living within our means, and I’m pleased with the work we put in to protect Hoosier taxpayers.
