The weakening economy is producing worse
and worse
tax revenue forecasts for Indiana. As a result, Democrats are calling for Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Republican,
to open the stateâ??s $1.3 billion rainy day fund.

Tough times like these are what the fund was created for, Dems say. Daniels has resisted, saying the economy could get worse.

Where do you come down on this? Is it time to start spending down the fund?
