Pence set to outline 2nd year legislative agenda

– Gov. Mike Pence is set to provide more details about his second-year agenda he says will focus on education, road construction and other economic issues.

Pence is scheduled to speak Thursday at a legislative conference put on annually by the Indianapolis law firm Bingham Greenbaum Doll. He has already said he plans spending his second session with the General Assembly pushing for a range of issues broadly focused on improving the state’s economy.

Included in his second-year agenda is a measure that would expand the number of charter schools. Others would search for ways to pay for new road construction and consider recommendations on improving career preparation among students.

Pence had moderate success pushing through his initiatives during his first legislative session this year.
