Daniels says he won't lobby for Purdue this session

Purdue University President Mitch Daniels says he won't be lobbying state lawmakers on Purdue's behalf this session because it's too soon after his departure from the governor's office.

Daniels became Purdue's president last week after serving two terms as governor. He told the Journal & Courier that he'd like at least one year to pass before he lobbies state lawmakers on the merits of Purdue's funding requests.

He also says he doesn't think "it is essential" for him to go to the Statehouse this year to lobby for Purdue's appropriations and other requests.

Purdue provost Tim Sands will continue to be the university's face at the Statehouse for hearings. Sands served as the school's acting president for the past six months.
