INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
Recommendations to pay for road improvements in Indiana include increasing
gas taxes, tolls and a vehicle fee.
Rep. Tim Brown of Crawfordsville and Republican state Sen. Luke Kenley of
Noblesville on Monday announced the recommendations of the task force they
co-chair. The panel was created as part of a two-year road funding plan
passed earlier this year. Members were tasked with finding new revenue to
pay for the state’s transportation infrastructure.
Kenley and Brown
said in a statement that the options announced Monday “will be carefully
debated and scrutinized” when the legislative session starts next month.
Kenley says he’s
confident lawmakers will find a “fiscally responsible plan” to pay for
Speaker Brian Bosma says the road funding plan is a “top priority.”
