Pelath Blast Tax Cuts, Redistribution of School Funding

Share this post

House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, of Michigan City, held a media availability in his office today to review the end of this legislative session. Pelath called the proposed tax cuts, which includes a combined five-percent tax cut, with the first reduction beginning in 2015, followed by an additional two-percent two years later, compromised politics at its worst, and says it should have been the full ten-percent cut or nothing. Pelath says giving the middle class a dollar back a week two years down the road won't do much to help Hoosier families.
Pelath also blasted the Republican supermajorities in the House and Senate for not restoring hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to public schools, but instead, are giving considerable more money to schools in wealthy communities, shortchanging those in less affluent communities.
