Rushville Republican

Gov. Pence's State of the State address


RUSHVILLE — As Hoosiers have shown over the past eight years, Reagan was right.

Hoosiers have found practical Indiana solutions to the challenges facing

their communities.

We have one of the most innovative healthcare programs in the country. We

have implemented

education reforms that are a model for the nation. And we have built our

roads on

time and under budget.

On these and other important matters, we must never stand by and let the


 government dictate our aims, our hopes, and our wishes for us. As your


I will never stop standing for the rights of Indiana's people to run our


choose our healthcare and produce our energy the Indiana way.

The road ahead of us will not be easy. But we know that Hoosiers are

willing to

do hard things, to embrace change, to demand a government as good as our


 to build schools of promise and policies that will ensure jobs and


for this generation and the next.

To do this, we must continue to live within our means, hold the line on


and let Hoosiers keep more of their hard-earned income. We must invest in


and roads, and seek ways to support the state's most vulnerable citizens

and strengthen

the institutions that nurture the character of our people.

This is Indiana's moment.

We can put Hoosiers back to work and make Indiana first-first in job

creation, first

in education, and first in quality of life.

Together, we will build a more prosperous future.

Together, we will open doors of educational opportunity for all our kids.

Together, we can approach our third century with confidence,

With faith in Him who strengthened the hands of our pioneer forbearers

and boundless

faith in all of you, I say Indiana's best days are yet to come!

Let's get to work!

Thank you, God bless you, and may God continue to bless our beloved

Indiana and

all who call her home.
