It’s better training, not lower taxes, that is Indiana’s most pressing economic development need.

The promise of a tax cut is always alluring. And sometimes tax cuts are the right prescription for improving economic vitality. But in this instance, given Indiana’s needs, its previous series of tax cuts and its history of rapidly rising and falling state revenues, the Pence tax plan is not fiscally prudent.
