Indiana governor poised to discuss teacher pay in speech

Governor Eric Holcomb

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb is expected to talk during his annual State of the State speech about a possible additional boost in school funding - just not one that would happen this year.

Holcomb is set to speak Tuesday night before a joint session of the Indiana House and Senate nearly two months after several thousand teachers attended a Statehouse rally calling for better pay.

Holcomb and others haven't given details of the proposal, but Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma says it will "free up resources" in future years.

The speech is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
