I really think those who think Indiana is not business friendly are not aware of the resources available to businesses in Indiana and those who want to come here. The IEDC's ombudsman program is an example for help in Permit and Regulatory Assistance.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation's regulatory ombudsman assists in the process of obtaining the permits and approvals necessary for a business operation. The ombudsman serves as a liaison between companies, communities, local economic development organizations and regulatory agencies.
The ombudsman assists both current and potential Indiana businesses with a variety of topics, including agency contacts and communication facilitation; license and permit requirements and applications; permit tracking; and regulatory compliance.
