Richard Mourdock: Space program is not in Constitution, but I support it

They grappled over the treasurer's April 2011 speech to a Madison, Ind. tea party group in which he said programs such as Medicare and Social Security are not included in the U.S. Constitution.

Mourdock insisted that he wasn't suggesting those programs should therefore be eliminated. After all, he said, neither the space program nor the Federal Bureau of Investigation are in the constitution, either, but he supports them.

Mitch Daniels: Invest $1.2 billion in Hoosier Heartland Corridor and US31

We will press hard to accelerate further the ahead-of-schedule, under-budget delivery of our Major Moves transportation program. In 2012, we will invest $1.2 billion in road and bridge construction, the sixth straight record-setting year.

The last contract on the Hoosier Heartland Corridor will be let next summer and the entire project finished by 2013. The last contracts on U.S. 31 from South Bend through Kokomo will be let this year, and we have accelerated completion of the entire corridor into 2015. I-69 will be open for traffic from Evansville to Crane, as will the entire Fort to Port highway in Northeast Indiana. The Sherman-Minton Bridge will be rebuilt and reopened by March and, upriver, an agreement on a new bridge from Utica to Louisville will be in place, cementing Indiana's place at the forefront of the public-private partnership movement.

We will build the state's 3,000th mile of bike and hiking trails, and reach our goal of a trail within 15 minutes of every Hoosier.

Mitch Daniels: Supports internet sales tax

I support federal legislation that would give states the option to require out of state sellers to collect and remit sales tax on items sold over the internet to Hoosiers as a better means to ensure collection than each consumer self assessing tax and remitting with their income tax return and to level the playing field for local retailers.
