“Twelve years ago, I sat side-by-side as Mitch Daniels became governor and—through his focus, vision and fearless leadership—Hoosiers came to not only accept change, but to expect it. The results of those early reforms fueled our current greatness.

“Mike Pence took that momentum and kept it going with more Hoosiers employed in the private sector today than at any time in our history.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2017 Inaugural Address



“This is our task: to take Indiana to the next level.
So I am proposing a set of transformational priorities – my five pillars – aimed at doing exactly that. Most will require long-term commitment and focus. Some will require new resources and new ways of doing business. But all of them must begin today.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2017 State of the State Address



“Because we’ve created one of the best business climates in the country, we’ve become national leaders in business growth.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2017 State of the State Address



“2018 is all about taking the tools that we’ve been provided and putting them to work with a single purpose in mind—to make life better for all Hoosiers. So, the question before us now is: What must we do to make sure every Hoosier has the opportunity to take part in the growing bounty our state has to offer?

That’s why this year, my focus can be summed up in three words: people, people, people.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2018 State of the State Address



“This is the defining issue of the decade, and we don’t have a day to waste. That’s why, of my five pillars, developing a skilled and ready workforce will demand the greatest focus and collaboration…”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2018 State of the State Address



“I’m going to view civility as the very foundation that all five pillars I just described rise up from. I’m convinced that our ultimate goals—this ambitious to-do list—will remain elusive unless we stay open to different points of views, treat each other with respect and focus not on what divides us, but on what we have in common.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2018 State of the State Address



“What a moment! It’s a moment we’ve built toward, a moment full of potential. It’s Indiana’s time. We have an unprecedented opportunity to take Indiana to the Next Level and, along the way, help transform the lives of more Hoosier children, students and citizens than ever before.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2018 State of the State Address



“Indiana has been transformed from having one of the worst financial conditions of any state to now having one of the best.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2019 State of the State Address



“This two-part mission – making the lives of Hoosiers better today while building for the future – has been and will remain my administration’s focus. My aim – to coin a phrase – is to take Indiana to the Next Level.

This isn’t a slogan on a billboard or bumper sticker to me. It’s an action-oriented aspiration that Indiana can be one of the leading states in the country by any measure.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2019 State of the State Address



“We will introduce every student to career and apprenticeship options in Indiana’s key opportunity industries.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2019 State of the State Address



“I will once again pursue exempting military pensions from our state income taxes so we can attract and retain talented patriotic veterans – who we know are some of the most experienced, focused and loyal workers anywhere.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2019 State of the State Address



“Once again, Indiana will show the way we solve challenging issues: together.”
-Governor Eric Holcomb, 2019 State of the State Address
