The legislative session gavels in today as lawmakers will discuss and debate potential new laws for the state of Indiana.
The biggest discussion of this session will be how Indiana leaders will spend your tax money over the next two years. Lawmakers will spend the next four months hammering out a budget that will likely center around three main tenants.
“We have three big asks in this budget,” said Stephanie Wells, the new head of the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute. “Healthcare, economic development, and education… and workforce development. Those are all very important.”
