Governor 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.
