(STATEHOUSE) - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Republican legislative leaders reached a budget deal Thursday that increases spending on roads and schools while cutting the personal income tax by 5 percent.

The Associated Press reports that the governor, who campaigned on the promise of a 10-percent cut, was pleased with the compromise.

The budget calls for increasing education spending by about $330 million over the next two years, and will increase road spending by $400 million with another $400 million slated for major highway expansion, AP said.
