INDIANAPOLIS- The governor gave the first State of the State address of his tenure at the Statehouse Tuesday evening.

FULL AUDIO: SEN. LANANE: "I thought there were some things in there I could agree with him upon, certainly in terms of his proposals with assisting veterans. Our caucus."
SEN. LANANE: "Again, I thought that his overall speech was a good speech."
SEN. LANANE: "He tried to make the case for his ten percent tax reduction. I'm not sure that he actually did that."
