State Sen. Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen), chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, made the following statement regarding the revenue forecast announced today:
STATEHOUSE (April 15, 2021) — "The revenue forecast we received today is certainly good news, and comes on the heels of a decade of fiscal discipline that is paying off in a big way for Hoosiers. That our state is projected to see a large increase in revenue means we have more flexibility in crafting our next budget than we planned for, but we still need to make responsible financial decisions that will benefit Hoosiers in both the near and distant future. It will be critical for us to make investments that don't create funding cliffs while balancing the current needs of Hoosiers, and that is the balance we will seek to strike with our colleagues in the House and the governor as we work toward the final version of the state's next budget."
