Daniels says he’s pleased with Legislature’s progress

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels says lawmakers are doing a pretty good job as they head toward adjourning the legislative session
by Thursday.

Daniels said Tuesday that the session has had a more civil tone to it than some past sessions. He says he's OK with lawmakers
adjourning early on Thursday, but wants them to make sure some issues are resolved.

Those include a one-year delay on an increase in taxes that employers pay into the state's unemployment insurance fund,
and allowing schools to shift money from dedicated funds to general operating expenses.

That would help them offset $300 million in budget cuts that Daniels ordered.
