State Budget Director Adam Horst has said Indiana should be able to balance the budget without cuts to K-12 education.

Even though Hoosier lawmakers will mostly likely have to balance the budget, one realm of the state's finances, looks to be improving.

Since the last two year budget was passed in 2009, about $300 million has been cut from schools, causing districts to lay off teachers, consolidate, and cut programs.

Many lawmakers have already said they don't want to cut education.

Meetings to balance the budget being on January 5.
