INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) Gov. Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement regarding the conclusion of the 2019 legislative session:

“I want to commend Speaker Bosma and Senator Bray for their extraordinary leadership, and a job well done to their members and staffs.

 “With the investments we’ll make over the next two years, we’ll be able to make our strong state, even more so.

 “We balanced our budget for the eighth straight time and protected our AAA credit rating. We’re making historic investments in K-12 education, expanding our school safety efforts, and implementing all the recommendations to improve our child services. We are strengthening our already transformational road and rail programs, doubling down on our Next Level Jobs programs, and connecting more Hoosiers to affordable broadband service. We passed a bias crimes law and modernized our tax code. We’ll help more babies reach their first birthdays. Indiana is on a roll.

 “I am proud of what was accomplished this legislative session and the way it was accomplished — by working together collaboratively.”
