The state's long-term economic health requires that we continue our commitment to fiscal discipline. Government must continue to spend the taxpayer's money more efficiently, so ultimately the State needs less of it. The Office of Management & Budget (OMB) brings together the financial and auditing functions of our state in order to serve these goals. On his first day in office, Governor Pence ordered the OMB to undertake a new government efficiency review and a review of all state regulations. In his first week in office, Governor Pence proposed a budget that was honestly balanced, funded our priorities, held the line on spending, provided broad-based tax relief for Hoosiers, and built our reserves. Through these actions, OMB will continue to strengthen the fiscal discipline that positively contributes to the economic health of the State.
