Indiana Republican legislative leaders aren’t totally sold on Gov. Eric Holcomb’s proposal to spend nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars this year to pay down state debt instead of direct relief for Hoosiers struggling during the pandemic.
Gov. Eric Holcomb’s new state budget proposal would spend $1.13 billion over the next two years on one-time initiatives. And almost none of that would be direct relief for Hoosiers struggling during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Gov. Eric Holcomb and Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch were sworn in for their second terms Monday at a ceremony that – because of COVID-19 – lacked the crowd and much of the pomp and circumstance from four years ago.
