The Indianapolis 500 always will be the fastest race in the state, but in even-numbered years the legislative sprint by the Indiana General Assembly runs a close second.
State Rep. Ed Soliday should be commended for looking at a pilot program to explore alternative ways to fund road construction in Indiana. The existing gas tax just isn't generating enough revenue.
Let me see if I've got this right.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. | Several Democratic state representatives have signed on to legislation that would eliminate the sales tax Illinois places on gasoline.
INDIANAPOLIS | Republican Gov. Mike Pence on Wednesday signed into law Indiana's $30 billion, two-year state budget that keeps spending increases below the inflation rate and provides Hoosiers more than a billion dollars in tax cuts.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled General Assembly early this morning was on the verge of approving a two-year state budget plan that reduces taxes on Hoosiers by $1.1 billion.
In recent weeks, I've been weaving around on U.S. 30, U.S. 421 and other highways. My driving would look suspicious to anyone who couldn't see I've been dodging potholes.
INDIANAPOLIS | Despite polls showing Hoosiers want Indiana to invest more in education, roads and other state services, the Republican-controlled General Assembly is poised to enact the largest package of tax cuts in state history.
INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana is taking in less revenue from its gasoline tax as fuel efficient and alternative fuel cars increasingly fill the state's roads and highways.
New Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has hit the ground running, addressing key economic development issues on his first day in office. That's a good start.
The push for home rule for Hoosier municipalities is understandable, from their standpoint, but their own history is against them.
INDIANAPOLIS | Whiting Mayor Joe Stahura and mayors across the state have a message for the Indiana General Assembly — trust us.
CROWN POINT | Lake County commissioners gave their approval Wednesday to a plan to borrow $5 million to repair crumbling rural road.
PORTAGE | Understanding the gas tax as a component of highway funding is not something many people do. So Build Indiana Council has created a video to "start a conversation" on finding solutions for what is becoming a problem.
INDIANAPOLIS | Despite gasoline prices topping $4 a gallon, talk by House Democrats of temporarily suspending state gas taxes appears to be a nonstarter with the General Assembly's Republican majority.
SPRINGFIELD | Democrats and Republicans who represent downstate Illinois are calling on Gov. Pat Quinn to put the brakes on a plan to divert money from the state's highway construction fund.
