On Friday, Daniels visited KIHM Metal Technologies, Inc., to make an announcement the company has made plans to expand its current business setting in the next few years, adding several new jobs and a possible second shift.
But even with states nationwide receiving recent stimulus money, Daniels said money will be used wisely.
"We'll keep the spending under control," Daniels told The Brazil Times. "We're moving faster than any state that I know of."
Daniels said several items are in the works to help create more jobs for state residents.
He said a project is in place to help improve state roads as well as weatherizing homes, among other items.
"We will use this money as aggressively as we can," Daniels said. "But the first thing folks should know is not much of the (stimulus money) is going to communities."
Daniels said at least one-third of the stimulus money is designated for education and another "big piece" to road projects.
"There is no big pot," he said. "Our hands are tied."
Still, he said plans have been put in place to attempt to create jobs, adding the state will "put people to work."
Daniels hinted at another announcement, which could come as early as next week, for younger people looking for "healthy outdoor work," primarily in rural areas.
