Short Session Comes To An End

The short legislative session is now over at the Indiana State House.

Gov. Mike Pence got a lot of what he said he wanted just not as much.

By the end of their 10-week stint, lawmakers ultimately approved a preschool plan in the final hours of the session, but it relies on Pence finding money through budget cuts and private donations.

A summer study committee also will examine the best options for preschool.

The governor's tax cut proposal was cut back after local opposition to the measure mounted. The final package of tax cuts never included a direct cut to the equipment tax and simply gives counties the option to cut it. It also pushes the start to July 1, 2015.

House and Senate Republicans tacked on the elimination of the state's inheritance tax and a cut to the state's banking tax.
