Indiana Funding Task Force May Recommend Tolling

WFYI reports, “Indiana’s roads task force may recommend the state begin tolling interstate highways. Previous debates over how to pay for Indiana’s infrastructure needs focused on fuel taxes, alternative fuel vehicle levies, and fees based on the number of miles someone drives. The discussion broadened at the second-to-last roads task force meeting. Engineer Steven Davidson recommends Indiana should explore tolling every interstate highway.” The report adds, “Task force co-chair Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) says tolling is a realistic possibility. ‘Certainly tolling would be the only way you’ll get any revenue out of somebody who’s from out of state who didn’t stop to buy gas,’ Kenley says. The roads task force will issue its recommendation to lawmakers before the legislative session begins in January.”
