Governor Mitch Daniels today outlined his legislative priorities for 2012. During a speech before members of the Downtown Indianapolis Kiwanis Club, the governor said local government reform, a statewide smoking ban, right to work and higher education affordability are among his priorities.
"We have all kinds of opportunities to find room for agreement and, I hope, bipartisan progress. I look forward to the next session, as I've looked forward to every session," said Daniels. "We are going to make more headway and further distinguish Indiana from other states. We are going to be able to say we used every opportunity to leave a better state to our kids."
