Crossing the line separating Indiana and Illinois sometimes means dealing with different laws and customs. Readers are asked to share ideas for this weekly feature. This week: Gas prices.
INDIANAPOLIS | If you picture the 150 members of the General Assembly as a choir, this year they sang their loudest hosannas for the business-first agenda of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
SPRINGFIELD | Illinois gas station owners say an increase in the state’s motor fuel tax would be bad for business and consumers.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. | A transportation group is proposing a plan to change the way Illinois pays for road construction, including an increase in gas taxes.
INDIANAPOLIS | More than two dozen legislative proposals were separately approved Thursday by the Republican-controlled House and Senate, sending them across the Statehouse rotunda and into the opposite chamber.
INDIANAPOLIS | Homeowners associations could no longer prohibit elected officials or political candidates from entering their neighborhoods under legislation unanimously approved by a House committee Wednesday.
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.
