Legislative Session Wraps with Lower Taxes, More Spending on Roads and Schools

This year’s session of the Indiana General Assembly was largely framed by two debates – Governor Mike Pence’s proposed ten percent income tax cut and implementation of the Affordable Care Act. 

Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Brandon Smith brings us a special report on the outcome of those and other key issues in the 2013 legislative session.

Brandon Smith is excited to be working for public radio in Indiana. He has previously worked in public radio as a reporter and anchor in mid-Missouri for KBIA Radio out of Columbia. Prior to that, he worked for WSPY Radio in Plano, Illinois as a show host, reporter, producer and anchor. His first job in radio was in another state capitol, in Jefferson City, Missouri, as a reporter for three radio stations around Missouri. Brandon graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Journalism in 2010, with minors in political science and history. He was born and raised in Chicago.
