Moving legislation through the process as session winds down
At this point, the governor has signed 20 bills into law. He is considering a handful of others, including proposals I supported to decrease cervical cancer rates in the state, help veterans and remove financial barriers for those heading off to college.

Children who attend high-quality preschool have higher wage-earning potential and are more likely to graduate from high school. With these proven benefits in mind, lawmakers are working this session on expanding early childhood education options in Indiana.

If the state paid for each preschool-aged student to attend a pre-K program, it would cost over $2 billion annually. This amount is equal to nearly a quarter of the current state budget allocated to the entirety of K-12 education.

Councilwoman responds to City on park issue
In all due respect, I would like to respond to the "city side" of the story concerning the development of Seminary Park. As sometimes happens, memories become faded and I might note that the Mayor was not at the meeting yet he has listened carefully to one side of the story.

The Park Board meeting and presentation did not meet any of the standard "Executive Session" rules. Steve Cooke noted several times that discussion of the project had been held on multiple occasions with business people, Council and others. Steve had informed me at a public ribbon cutting about a month earlier. Once discussion happens, nothing is confidential. The materials handed out at the meeting were allowed to go out of the room, again not confidential.
