Penalize firms that ship jobs overseas
I have always believed that our country works best when the middle class is strong. It's good for families, businesses and our local communities.
For decades, the strength of the middle class has been rooted in a social contract between businesses and workers - a mutual understanding that the success of one contributes to the success of the other.
Yet, in Indiana and across the country, we have seen a troubling, decades-long trend of a shrinking middle class, due in part to a decline in manufacturing.

Pence can't erase decades of neglect on preschool
Make no mistake. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's letter to federal officials expressing interest in funding that would expand the state's support for preschool is good news.
It's frustrating because it's late, yes. And it's likely political with campaigning beginning in earnest.

Testing referenda
Indiana got pretty excited about the primary election last month. We played a role in the presidential sweepstakes, and the election result in November might affect our lives someday.
But in 10 school districts the election results will affect the lives of students, teachers, parents and taxpayers right away. Ten school districts voted on tax and capital projects referenda.
The state has had 138 school referenda since November 2008, and 76 have passed. That's 55 percent. November 2008 was the first election when the state required referenda to approve borrowing for big capital projects. There have been 61 capital projects referenda since then, and 49 percent have passed. We've also seen 77 tax referenda, which raise taxes and revenue for general purposes. Sixty percent of those have passed.
