How much more can the citizens of Indiana swallow? Gov. Mike Pence said he is pushing to eliminate the personal property tax on business, and to replace the lost revenue, just increase the county income taxes.
Now the Indiana Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Rockport gasification project. Mitch Daniels signed this contract in which the state agrees to buy the synthetic gas. The taxpayers of Indiana will get surcharges on their natural gas bills to make up 100 percent of the losses the state has if the gas cost more than natural gas.
Supreme Court Justice Mark Massa is a close friend of Mark Lubbers, who was hired by the gasification company to oversee the project.
Also, a strange coincidence that Massa was Daniel’s chief counsel, and Lubbers was his political advisor. Massas should not have been allowed to rule on this.
