INDIANAPOLIS—State Senator Karen Tallian (D-Ogden Dunes) released the following comments after the forecast revenue announcement on Wednesday:

“I am pleased with the result of this revenue forecast which is practically unchanged since the last report in December. The numbers show that we will still have plenty of money to fully fund public education, teacher salaries and the Department of Child Services. The next few days will be spent in negotiations as we hope to get more Senate Democratic priorities in the budget as it is finalized.”
