Holcomb, Others to be Sworn In Today
Eric Holcomb and other incoming elected state officials will be publicly sworn in to office this morning. Former U.S. Senator Dan Coats, who was recently named Director of National Intelligence by the Trump administration, will take part in today’s ceremony. Over the weekend, outgoing Governor Mike Pence released a video discussing his time in the state’s highest office.
Pence says Indiana has "become synonymous with fiscal responsibility, innovation and a growing economy." He touted the state’s accomplishments during his administration.
"Together we made great strides since that January 2013 day when I took the oath of office," said Pence. "We lived up to our reputation and worked hard to create a state that attracts investment and jobs. With the Indiana General Assembly, we cut taxes in each of the last four years. We held the line on spending and with balanced budgets and record reserves, Indiana became the fiscal envy of the country. We rolled back burdensome red tape and made historic investments in education, infrastructure, innovation and reform."
