Statement from State Sen. Ryan Mishler

Ryan Mishler“During the 2019 legislative session, I worked with my colleagues to pass our state’s next two-year budget, which featured an increase of $763 million toward K-12 education, including $150 million to pay down schools’ pension liabilities.

 

“This evening in his State of the State address, Gov. Holcomb recommended that in Indiana’s next budget, the General Assembly allocate an additional $250 million from our state’s surplus and put it toward teacher retirement funds.

 

“This would generate $50 million a year that can be redirected to teacher pay, and I commend Gov. Holcomb’s fiscally responsible idea to pay down our state’s pension liability.

“I look forward to working with the governor and my colleagues on this and other important issues facing Indiana, and I will continue to prioritize Indiana’s students and teachers moving forward.”
