Instead of Rebates, Let’s Restore Cuts and Fulfill Promises

With the fiscal year end closeout, Governor Daniels announced that individuals would receive $100 rebates and couples would receive $200 rebates on their state taxes next year. This comes from $2 billion (that billion with a “B”) in reserves that the Governor describes as originating from cost savings, cuts in services and a tax accounting error and not from growth in revenues. Given the severe cuts to education and human services over the last two years, the Indiana Coalition for Human Services (ICHS) reminds Hoosiers and policy makers the potential impact of $2,000,000,000.
