Statement from Senate President Pro Tem David Long

Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) made the following statement today regarding the 2017 Fiscal Closeout Report:

STATEHOUSE (July 19, 2017) ― “By passing honestly balanced budgets and practicing fiscal discipline, Indiana has been able to fund our priorities and plan for the future, all while ending the year with a $42 million budget surplus and maintaining nearly $1.8 billion in reserves, which protect taxpayers in the event of an economic downturn. Today’s fiscal closeout report is a clear demonstration of why Indiana continues to be a national leader in fiscal integrity.”
