Gov. Daniels has productive final legislative session

INDIANAPOLIS -- Gov. Mitch Daniels said his final legislative session was a good one!

On Monday, he said he was especially happy that full-day kindergarten passed.

Daniels said it has been a priority of his for several years, but the state did not have the money to do it until now.

"We'll be spending $160 million, more or less, to make sure that kinder, full-day kindergarten's available in every district in Indiana.  And so it's been a, a long march over these last few years.  But we are really pleased and excited that we were able to do this," said Daniels.

Daniels also applauded the smoking ban, Right to Work, and more compensation for State Fair victims.
