TOP STORIES:

INDIANA LEGISLATURE-REVENUE

INDIANAPOLIS _ Despite a positive state revenue forecast, Indiana lawmakers will likely have less money to spend on child services and education when they start drafting the next two-year budget. State fiscal analysts estimate that state revenues will increase by $442 million in 2020 and $386 million in 2021. While that’s more than the roughly $350 million in new cash anticipated by lawmakers, a massive increase for the Indiana Department of Child Services and a jump in Medicaid expenses will likely consume nearly the entire revenue increase.
