INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric Holcomb and Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer issued the following statement after the Indiana General Assembly went into recess, concluding the budgetary portion of the 2021 legislative session.
Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement:
“This has been a historic legislative session and I’m grateful for all the support my Next Level Agenda achieved. Indiana will be in an even stronger position with this new budget which prioritizes investing in Hoosiers.
“The Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative will lead the nation in encouraging community collaboration to improve quality of place and advance industry sector development. The raises for educators, increased education funding, expanded broadband access and workforce development grants are all game-changers.
“Indiana will remain on a roll thanks to the teamwork of all those involved throughout this legislative session.”
“This legislative session won’t soon be forgotten and I applaud Governor Holcomb and legislative leaders for accomplishing a great deal during an uncertain time. This session certainly looked different than others, but the results were something Hoosiers have grown accustomed to under Republican leadership. Conservative fiscal management led to record new investments in education, communities, infrastructure, law enforcement and Hoosier communities. All done without raising taxes and without making the drastic cuts other states have had to make.”
