Sep 22, 2017

Vice President Mike Pence returned to Indiana Friday to call for federal tax reform. And, as expected, Pence asked all of Indiana’s Congressional delegation – including Democrat, Sen. Joe Donnelly – to support the efforts.

Pence gave no details about specific ways to reform the federal tax code at an appearance in Anderson. He says taxes would be lower for working families, small businesses and family farms – a line Hoosiers will remember from his term as governor. Pence says President Donald Trump will sign a tax cut by the end of the year, with one goal in mind.

Indiana’s business community is waiting to see how federal tax reform plans, set for release next week, might impact their companies and workers.

At a roundtable in Indianapolis on Thursday, business leaders said they want to communicate to their workers and the public that lowering America’s corporate tax rate will be good for more than just executive paychecks.

Vice President Mike Pence returned home to Indiana for a reveal of his official gubernatorial portrait.

Pence leans against his desk with his hands crossed in his portrait, an open Bible to his right with a photo of his wife and children, and on his left a stack of law books, and the United States and Indiana flags behind him.

Each portion of the portrait has significance to Pence, including a stack of law books that belonged to his father, that now are with him in Washington, D.C.
