Jobs & Economy
Even one Hoosier out of work or underemployed is one too many. We need to do everything in our power to bring our fellow Hoosiers back to the table, and we need to get those folks caught up financially.
That said, Indiana sets the standard for sound fiscal policy in the United States with an AAA credit rating and an actual budget surplus. While other states are raising taxes to keep up with mounting debt, Indiana continues to make smart financial choices. Put simply, we need to replicate this model for the rest of the nation. A welcoming tax environment and less regulation will incentivize businesses to move to Indiana, and hardworking Hoosiers will keep them here.
I support Governor Holcomb’s “Next Level Roads Plan.” As the “Crossroads of America,” Indiana should lead the nation in quality, maintenance, and efficiency of infrastructure, and the federal government should support us in that endeavor. Infrastructure initiatives also provide the opportunity to create jobs for Hoosiers that need them, and I intend to support legislation that does exactly that.
