John Gregg jobs plan stresses preschool, small business growth

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg wants to make preschool optional for all Indiana 4-year-olds, pour money into growing small businesses and rebuild Indiana’s image to one friendly to gay rights.

Gregg presented an economic growth plan Monday that also would seek legislation to give local governments the flexibility to use local-option income taxes for economic development and quality-of-life projects and focus more of the state’s training dollars toward the high-wage, high-growth economic sectors of life sciences, advanced manufacturing, information technology, agribusiness and 21st century logistics.

Gregg faces Republican incumbent Mike Pence in a rematch of the 2012 election that Pence won narrowly.

Pence campaign spokesman Marc Lotter says Gregg is “late to the game” with his jobs plan and Pence has a plan that’s already working for Indiana.
