The results are in and the most comprehensive education reforms in the country and a structurally balanced budget with an automatic taxpayer refund top a long list of legislative achievements for Governor Mitch Daniels during the 2011 Indiana Generally Assembly session that concluded Friday.

"This is an agenda for Indiana's future. There have been other sessions where we've done huge things, but long term this may be the most meaningful set of changes of all, and I hope it will prove that way," said Daniels.

The governor's 2011 successes include a K-12 education agenda that puts students first, including dramatically expanding charter schools, providing parents with more school choice, revising teacher evaluations and expanding full-day kindergarten funding; a structurally balanced budget that met the governor's parameters; broadened public-private partnerships; a solution to the imbalance in the state's unemployment insurance trust fund, and confirmation of state employee collective bargaining practices into state law.
