Gov. Pence's State of the State address

(Continued)

RUSHVILLE — Third, reducing the personal income tax rate is the best way to lower

taxes on small

businesses and family farms. Ninety-two percent of Hoosier small

businesses pay

their taxes under the individual income tax rate. By lowering taxes,

small businesses

will have more money to hire new employees, purchase new equipment and

grow.

Fourth, by lowering the personal income tax rate by 10 percent, it will

be official:

Indiana will be the lowest taxed state in the Midwest. Companies who are

here will

have one more reason to expand and we will give businesses outside

Indiana one more

reason to move to the Hoosier state.

Because we can afford to cut taxes for every Hoosier, I believe we

should. And on

behalf of millions of hardworking Hoosiers, small businesses and family

farms, I

 respectfully ask for your support.

Our jobs budget is all about getting this economy moving, but we can't

succeed in

the marketplace if we don't succeed in the classroom.

We have to put kids first and ensure that every child in Indiana has

access to a

 world-class education at public school, public charter school, private

school or

home.

I'm sure everyone in this Chamber has a favorite teacher. Mine is sitting

right

up there in the balcony-our new First Lady Karen Pence.

My wife Karen has spent her career in the classroom. We both believe

teaching is

 a calling, and Indiana has the best teachers in the world.

When most people tell you about their favorite teacher, they tell you

about the

one who pushed them the hardest, who challenged them to grow; the teacher

who held

them to a high standard.

Those teachers know that setting high expectations works. We believe

that, too.

Indiana teachers and schools have shown that they will rise to the

challenge and

 make tremendous gains for our children. This October, we learned that

207 schools

received the highest school ranking for the first time. Forty-three

schools moved

up three letter grades. Twenty-eight schools moved from the lowest

ranking to a

mid-ranking. This is a testament to the commitment and excellence of our

teachers,

and proof that our accountability system produces gains for our schools.
