Indiana Senate Is Likely to Amend Tolling Provisions of House-Passed Transportation Funding Bill

The Journal Gazette reports, “It was the Senate’s turn [on March 14] to take up a proposed road funding plan that relies on tax and user fee increases. Two committees jointly heard more than three hours of testimony for and against the legislation, and plan to amend and vote on House Bill 1002 next week. . . . [A]reas that are ripe for change include tolling language. . . .” (Link added.) Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek), one of the committee chairs, told WFYI “he’ll explore curtailing the bill’s broad tolling authority. ‘I don’t anticipate moving a bill out of this committee that favors tolling of existing interstates.’”
