Gov. Pence's State of the State address

RUSHVILLE — The following is a copy of Gov. Mike Pence's State of the State address.

State of the State

Governor Michael R. Pence

January 22, 2013

As prepared for delivery:

Speaker Bosma, President Pro Tem Long, Lt. Governor Ellspermann, Senator

Lanane,

 Representative Pelath, members of the General Assembly and Judiciary,

distinguished

guests, my fellow Hoosiers:

I am honored to stand before you today as governor of all the people of

Indiana

and I know that, together, we will write the next great chapter of

Indiana history.

Thank you for that warm welcome. To my colleagues gathered here I say, my

remarks

will not be as brief as last week's inaugural address, but your feet will

be warmer!

Article V, of the Constitution of the State of Indiana provides that the

Governor

shall "give to the General Assembly information touching the condition of

the State,

and recommend such measures as he shall judge to be expedient."

In discharging that duty, I come before you to proclaim that the state of

our state

is strong and growing stronger because we have good government and

because we serve

a great people. If we will remain bold, confident and optimistic, I am

positive

we can lead our state from good to great.

Hoosiers owe a debt of gratitude to all the leaders gathered in this

room. Because

of your service in the recent past, our state has become the fiscal envy

of the

nation and a model from how good government works.

We have balanced budgets and surpluses when most states are broke or

struggling.

 We are one of only nine states with a AAA bond rating-higher than the

federal government.

But while we rightly celebrate our progress, these are still difficult

times for

 too many in our state.

As we gather this evening, a quarter million Hoosiers are out of work,

and nearly

one million Hoosiers lack the skills they need to succeed in today's

marketplace.
