On Senate Recess Donnelly Visits Lafayette

During a two-week recess in the Senate session, Joe Donnelly came to Lafayette yesterday to talk about budgets and other matters. Donnelly said he'd like to see more action on infrastructure: “My biggest concern, honestly, is having funding ... (because) today infrastructure is not a luxury item ... it is part of our core mission. The infrastructure is not something that we can decide to do or not to do. We have to do, because if we don’t, it’s not just a business decision, it’s a safety decision.” He spoke about gay rights in its economic context: “I want Indiana to be a welcoming place. We’re competing for talent in a (global) market.” Read more about his visit from the J&C here.
