Republican legislative leaders say it’s “critically important” that Governor Eric Holcomb support their charge to raise taxes for road funding.
Top fiscal lawmakers say the potential impact of Donald Trump’s proposed reforms could upend the new state budget they’ll write early next year.
Indiana’s infrastructure task force approved recommendations that include raising taxes to generate funds for roads and bridges.
The bill would spend down the state's surplus instead of generating revenue from tax increases.

$40 million of the education increase Pence is asking for would go to charter schools. The increase would amount to about $1,500 per charter school pupil.
