  • Moving day
  • Expanding Indiana’s workforce

    Indiana’s unemployment rate is continuing to fall each month. In general, economists agree that a rate below 5 percent indicates a strong economy. Currently, our statewide unemployment rate is at 3.6 percent. This is lower than the national average of 4.4 percent, and it is lower than all four of our bordering states.

    I have significant differences with Donald Trump’s political stances, but I want him to enjoy a successful presidency. It’s good for neither the country nor the world when a U.S. president struggles or fails.

    Yet, I also believe that constructive criticism can help a president grow more capable. It’s in this spirit that I want to take a hard look at the Trump presidency so far.

  • Strengthening our commitment to fiscal integrity

    District 74

     

    When Indiana lawmakers meet during a budget session, it’s important that we invest in our priorities like education and public safety while ensuring we don’t spend more money than we take in. This session, we passed an honestly balanced budget, which funds state operations including education, public safety, veteran’s programs, substance abuse prevention and workforce development over the next two years.

  • Indiana’s infrastructure improvements

    The 2017 legislative session recently concluded and along with passing a balanced state budget, the General Assembly accomplished a key goal by making the largest investment in state and local infrastructure in Indiana’s history.

  • New laws may affect you

    Sen. Erin Houchin

    District 47

     

    The Indiana General Assembly has adjourned “sine die,” marking the end of the 2017 legislative session.

    Before the session began, my fellow legislators and I set our priorities, which included improving our workforce development efforts, keeping our state budget balanced and replacing the ISTEP exam. I am proud to say we were able to achieve all of those goals.

    TELL CITY – Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon fielded questions on the American Health Care Act, defense spending and first weeks of the Donald Trump Administration during an appearance April 13 at the Pour Haus.

    Bucshon spoke to a group of constituents, including local Republicans. While not a formal public town hall meeting, Bucshon faced friendly, but at times, tough questions on the gridlock and head-butting in the nation’s capital, including disagreements among Republicans.
