Newly inaugurated Indiana Governor Mike Pence ran on a tax cut platform and he still wants to implement a tax cut for Indiana Hoosiers.  His critics say that the state should keep the tax rate it has and use the money for schools and for roadway maintenance/construction.

Governor Pence says that the state can afford the tax cut and that it would infuse millions of dollars into the Indiana economy: yet, the Indiana Department of Transportation has already publicly stated that it doesn't have enough money to keep Hoosier roadways in repair.  Plus, if you consider the fact that Indiana public schools' state funding was cut a few years ago resulting in teacher layoffs and stress on already strained school budgets, you may lean towards the state keeping the tax money it's collecting to breathe new life into public schools.
