Mishler 2019Senator Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen) released a statement on the 2-year budget approved Thursday.

“Indiana’s next two-year state budget is truly historic, as it increases K-12 funding by $1.9 billion. The budget we passed today continues the General Assembly’s strong support of Hoosier students and schools with half of the General Fund appropriated for education. To further support our public schools and teachers, following recommendations from the Next Level Teacher Compensation Commission report, the budget includes the full $600 million down payment needed to improve teacher pay across the state. I am grateful for the continued collaboration between the Senate, the House of Representatives and the governor throughout this legislative session, and I believe this budget will ensure the future success of Indiana and greatly benefit students, teachers and families alike.”
