Pence signing Indiana preschool, road money bills

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is touting a pair of wins on two of his priorities from this year’s legislative session: funding for preschools and roads.

Pence began the day Thursday by signing the preschool pilot program into law during a ceremony at DayStar Childcare Ministry in Indianapolis. The plan would pay for low-income children to attend preschools in five counties.

Pence is traveling to Valparaiso to sign new road funding into law Thursday afternoon. The state could see up to a $400 million boost to pay for highway projects, but half the money will depend on how the state’s finances are doing at the end of the year.

The measures represent a portion of what the governor originally sought. Fiscal concerns led Senate Republicans to scale back the governor’s requests.
