After the Republican-dominated Indiana Legislature shoved through a 5 percent state income tax cut as a compromise gesture to new Gov. Mike Pence, media outlets like The Columbus Republic rightly termed the tax cut “silly.”
Any Democrat looking at either statewide office or the state Legislature needs to think twice before embracing Republican calls for yet more budget-busting cuts in corporate taxes as a way to spur job growth. The evidence is overwhelming that there are far better ways to make Indiana attract…
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' new book only reconfirms his longtime contempt and disgust for an entire region of the state — Northwest Indiana. In it, he perpetuates old and stale stereotypes such as "governmental corruption," and he rips the area as hostile to new employers for what he calls …
With my law practice partially focused on cases involving protection of utility customers, it's understandable that I get stopped on the street and asked what the average guy can do about skyrocketing prices at the gas pump.
