Eric Holcomb on Budget & Economy

 

 


Infrastructure a priority, complete interstate project

I made infrastructure a priority four years ago because of the need to have strong connections with each other and the world. That means we'll complete I-69, the longest new interstate project in the country, from Evansville to Indy, three years ahead of schedule and paid for, and we'll move toward the construction of a new I-69 bridge over the Ohio River, as well as pursue plans for future upgrades to US 30 and 31 up north, as an example.

Building "One Indiana" border to border

A booming economy requires a strong infrastructure and our growth has enabled us to make unprecedented investments into building "One Indiana," border to border. We're completing I-69 from Evansville to Indy three years ahead of schedule, and we're making US 31 stoplight-free all the way up to South Bend.

$250-million Next Level Indiana Trust Fund

For all Hoosiers to be successful, we must continue to cultivate our strong and diverse economy--modernizing traditional sectors like manufacturing and agriculture, strengthening those where we've built a competitive advantage--like aerospace and life sciences--and nourishing emerging ones, like tech. That's exactly why we established the new $250-million Next Level Indiana Trust Fund, and in the first quarter of this year we'll begin to make strategic investments to build and support more innovation and entrepreneurship in our state.

Tax-and-borrower math will bust us, not lead to prosperity

A robust American economy is vital not only to our national security, but to the preservation of the upward mobility characteristic of the American Dream. At the same time our national debt is out of control & our safety net programs are going bankrupt. The promises we've made from one generation to the next are all under serious threat. The fact is, we are going to run out of money. It's as simple as that. The math will bust us and the "tax-and-borrowers" aren't being honest about it. We simply can't afford more credit downgrades, more debt, or more economic instability. There's just no formula to tax and borrow or redistribute our way to prosperity. We have an obligation to hand over to future generations that to which they have been promised; namely, a country that honors the commitments it has made to our seniors, our children, and our most vulnerable. Policies that ignite private sector economic growth, not higher taxes and more borrowing, are the only way to see those promises through.
