Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) made the following statement regarding the final state budget proposal:
STATEHOUSE (April 20, 2021) — "The state budget announced today is a truly historic investment in education, with $1.9 billion in new money for K-12 education. This budget also eliminates more than $1 billion in government debt and invests in the health of Hoosiers and the economic health of communities all across the state.
"Thanks to the collaboration among the House, Senate and governor's office, we have also appropriated nearly every federal stimulus dollar coming to the state. The investments we are making today will leave our state's finances better than we found them. Rather than create future obligations, we are creating flexibility for the state moving forward so that our state can continue to thrive and provide opportunities for all Hoosiers in Indiana."
