Summer at the Indiana Statehouse

Summer at the Indiana Statehouse

Schools might be on vacation, but your legislators will now convene their Summer Study Committees.  Priorities include: education, water resource management, fiscal policy.

In-depth study of funding sources for pre-k and early childhood.  There is a statewide economic impact study going on right now of early childhood education. The Chamber and United Way are studying how improvements to the current system affects economic viability and competitiveness for jobs and talent.

Fiscal Policy:
Looking at the state's tax code, specifically, tax equity, property and income tax and business personal property taxes.  We want to maintain a strong, stable tax climate for business, local government and public education.

Energy and Telecommunications:
Reviewing the management of existing resources of water on a state, regional and local level. Water resources play a part in economic sustainability and should advocate for responsible use and allocation and possibly create a single source regulatory process for that management.

The Indy Chamber will track their progress throughout the summer.  You can follow their conversation on twitter : @IndyChamber
