Indiana Lawmakers Finally Approve Funding Bill That Opens the Door to Tolling

The Journal Gazette reports, “Hoosiers should start smelling asphalt soon under a bill [HB 1002] that passed the House and Senate very late Friday night [April 21]. The Republican-led legislature voted on a long-term road funding plan, giving $870 million in new money for state roads and $340 million for local infrastructure by 2024. The money comes from increased gas taxes and fees – and possibly tolling in the future.”
