Daniels To Address Lawmakers Tuesday

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will deliver his annual State of the State Address to the General Assembly Tuesday night.Daniels says there will be no surprises in his speech, which will focus mainly on jobs and the economy. Like other states, Indiana's tax revenues are falling well short of projections. Daniels has already ordered state agencies to trim spending by hundreds of millions of dollars from the two-year budget passed just last summer.The current 30-day legislative session began on January 5 and Daniels says lawmakers have already covered a lot of ground on issues such as property tax caps, ethics reform and local government modernization."My impression is that even though this is a short off-year session that some really important work is going on and may well be completed. So, i don't want to interfere with it. When they're doing so well i'm trying to stay out of their way," he said.Daniels will deliver his speech at 7:00pm Eastern time Tuesday in Indianapolis.
