Pence: Indiana economy is still struggling

Statement issued Monday by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence:

While every Hoosier can be encouraged by the news that Indiana added 8,200 private sector jobs in January, our state’s unemployment rate is too high. As I have seen in my travels across the state, despite the progress we have made, our economy is still struggling.

In light of today’s news, we have no choice but to remain bold in our efforts to strengthen our economy and put Hoosiers back to work. We must enact a budget that holds the line on spending, funds our priorities, protects our reserves and allows hardworking Hoosiers and small business owners to keep more of what they earn.

By maintaining our commitment to fiscal responsibility, reducing taxes, cutting red tape, and investing in workforce innovation, Indiana can and will stem the tide of unemployment and put Hoosiers struggling in this economy back to work.
