Evansville Mayor Skeptical About I-69 Construction

Weinzapfel questions Gov. Daniels' commitment, speculates on gas tax hike.

The mayor of Evansville says he questions Governor Mitch Daniels’ commitment to construction of the I-69 highway extension linking his city with Indianapolis.

Mayor Jonathon Weinzapfel says the governor and Indiana Department of Transportation officials are probably commenting on I-69
