"We have pledged we are going to look at strategic investments and strategic restorations of what we've had to cut in the past," Bosma said Tuesday. "I think the chairman has expressed proper caution about additional tax cuts. Not to say 'No,' but caution, and as we were talking earlier the fiscal fog is thick. And you only get a couple of points in time where we get a picture, and that's a snapshot."

House Democrats say Indianapolis Rep. Greg Porter will be their ranking member on the budget panel. Porter said Tuesday he is ready to work with Brown, but plans to push Democratic priorities during the 2013 session.

"I believe that we have many opportunities to pass legislation that balances the need to return some of our state's $2 billion surplus to Hoosier families with a desire to restore some of the funding that has been taken from our schools and those agencies within state government that provide critical services to many people across Indiana," Porter said.
