Pence plans more charters, road money for 2014

Gov. Mike Pence


Gov. Mike Pence is planning a second-year legislative agenda centered on expanding the number of charter schools, finding ways to pay for road projects and seek new tax cuts.

Pence told The Associated Press he plans to spend his second legislative session building on groundwork laid over the past year. He spoke Wednesday at the Republican Governors Association annual meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault wouldn't provide specifics of the governor's agenda Thursday. He's expected to release more details next month.

Pence's comments came the day after lawmakers gathered for their organization day before the 2014 session. The broad strokes of Pence's plan are similar to what Republican legislative leaders say they want to focus on.
