In Indianapolis, state legislatures approved the 2021 State budget Thursday Afternoon in the Senate.
Governor Holcomb released a statement following the end of the regular legislative business, "This has been a historic legislative session and I’m grateful for all the support my Next Level Agenda achieved. Indiana will be in an even stronger position with this new budget which prioritizes investing in Hoosiers."
Other state senators also released their own statements, some even praising President Biden for getting the Covid Relief bill passed to help get things done in communities across the state.
"I also want to acknowledge the integral role that President Biden’s American Rescue Plan played in making this happen. Because of the federal funds allocated to our state, we have the ability to pay for projects like broadband expansion and new construction projects, which will help Indiana reach its next level," a statement from Sen. Qaddoura Thursday afternoon.
