Spend down our $2 billion Hoosier surplus? We've been there, done that
Back in 1998, the state of Indiana had over $1.3 billion in surplus funds in its general account. This was about 57 days of state spending. The state had total surplus funds of over $2 billion that was over 24 percent of its annual operating revenues.
I remember the cries of the time: The state should not be a bank, social spending has been cut to the bone and must be increased, taxes should be cut in the presence of such a "structural" surplus, and, of course, education spending should be increased at all levels.
