Verbatim: Zody statement on Holcomb budget

The following was released on Thurs. Jan. 10, 2019 by the Indiana Democratic Party: 

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after the Holcomb administration introduced its 2019-2021 budget. 

"Even after 'finding' additional resources, Governor Holcomb's budget doesn't earmark even one dime specifically for teacher pay raises. 'I owe u's' and empty promises won't cut it for hardworking teachers. Budgets are about priorities, that Holcomb failed to include a teacher pay raise or significantly expand preschool sure looks like a governor without a serious plan."
