Daniels To Outline Final Legislative Agenda Next Month

From the Associated Press

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels says he will outline his plans for his final legislative session as governor in a few weeks.

Daniels has already said he plans to push for changes to criminal sentencing laws and a local government overhaul when lawmakers return to the Statehouse in early January.

He also said Tuesday he will announce his position on “right-to-work” legislation soon.

Daniels is entering his final legislative session as governor. The Republican is term-limited from running again next year.

Daniels has previously pushed ambitious agendas with a fair amount of success. He says the agenda he’ll announce in a Dec. 16 speech “just might” expand beyond sentencing and local government reform.
