Pence's Budget Proposal on Committee Agenda
The State Budget Committee will meet today at the Statehouse for the first time this year. Governor Mike Pence's two-year state budget proposal is among the items on the agenda. A major part of the governor's plan will revolve around education spending, including $10 million for pre-kindergarten scholarships. He is also expected to push to "adjust funding" for public charter and private school voucher initiatives.
During a presentation last month at the Bingham Greenebaum Doll 2014 Legislative Conference, Pence laid out his education agenda for the General Assembly.
