Governor Mike Pence is prodding Indiana legislators to bring tax relief to businesses and individuals.
In his second State of the State address last night, the governor thanked the House and Senate for beginning work quickly on finding the best way to meet his goal of phasing out the business personal property tax. And he reminded legislators that he‘s also seeking another income tax cut in the form of increased personal and dependent deductions.
The governor signaled support for a constitutional ban on gay marriage, declaring marriage should be defined by "the people, not unelected judges."
Pence‘s fellow Republicans are calling his State of the State a good blueprint for the session ahead, while Democrats are dismissing the address as "underwhelming."
