Pence signs state budget

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gov. Mike Pence signed the state’s jobs budget Wednesday.

The bill, called HEA 1001, is a historic tax relief in an effort to help Hoosiers keep more money in their pockets as well as make the state more competitive for new jobs.

The tax relief comes out to $600 million a year.

Pence said in a release the budget will also increase funding for schools - $190 million for K12 education - and $600 million for roads and infrastructure. The bill also says $25 million will be provided for Indiana’s life sciences.
