Former Indiana Governor Daniels Touts His Record on Transportation Infrastructure

The Indianapolis Star publishes an op-ed column by former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, who notes in reference to the Indiana Toll Road lease deal, “From 2006-16, the state highway budget virtually doubled. A construction budget that had averaged $700 million per year shot up to over $1 billion every year, peaking around $1.5 billion. Almost one third of the state’s bridges, 1,400 in all, were rebuilt or replaced, and half the existing highway lane miles resurfaced. By the way, this all happened without a penny of new taxes or borrowing, and while the Toll Road itself was dramatically upgraded.”
