Governor Mitch Daniels said today that completing full funding for full-day kindergarten, a right to work law and preserving the automatic taxpayer refund topped his list of successes for the 2012 legislative session. A statewide smoking ban, phasing out the inheritance tax and additional compensation for victims of the August 2011 state fair stage rigging collapse are other notable accomplishments.
"There will always be work ahead. I hope these eight years have established a new expectation that every single year we will look to do important significant things. I believe that can be said of the last eight years, including No. 8. I hope there will always be something that bothers us, something that excites us about how we can build a bigger state," said Daniels.
