Gov. Eric Holcomb will unveil his legislative and administrative agenda for 2020 Tuesday.

It’s likely to build on the themes Holcomb’s focused on throughout his term.

Speaking at a recent legislative conference, Holcomb said his agenda will incorporate the idea of “One Indiana” – that the state’s focus must be collaborative between not just urban hubs but also small communities.

“Connect this network of our port system, our rail system, our road system, internet system,” Holcomb says.

Holcomb also stresses the idea of “quality of place” and a need to do a better job selling that.

“Critically important that there are – it sounds basic, but – things to do," Holcomb says. "It’s a cool place to live, work, play and ultimately stay.”

Holcomb will unveil his full agenda at a Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
