(BEDFORD, IN) - Indiana Senate Republicans say their caucus stands ready to work with Gov. Mitch Daniels and other lawmakers to balance the state's two-year state budget and to consider reforms outlined in Tuesday's State of the State Address.
State Senator Brent Steele states, "I applaud Governor Daniels' agenda for 2011 and look forward to working with him on challenging initiatives."
Daniels' seventh State of the State called on lawmakers to pass legislation improving Indiana schools, reforming local government and updating the state's criminal justice system.
Steele says most Senate Republicans are philosophically supportive of Daniels' call to identify and reward successful teachers and principals.
