Gov. Mitch Daniels will be honored today with the Manhattan Institute's Alexander Hamilton Award. The institute selected the governor for his achievements in state government, including healthcare improvements, landmark education reforms and fiscal responsibility.
The Manhattan Institute created the award 12 years ago to honor individuals who assisted in the revitalization of the nation's cities. Throughout the years, the organization has expanded the scope of the prize to celebrate leaders at the state level.
The event is in New York tonight.
In 2008, the Manhattan Institute recognized Daniels with its national award for innovation.
