Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in today's coverage of the governor’s signing of House Enrolled Act 1001:
INDIANAPOLIS (March 23, 2016) – “"This plan addresses our state’s immediate road funding needs while ensuring legislators come back to the table next year ready to move forward on a long-term plan," Bosma said. "With House Enrolled Act 1001, we have taken a strong first step toward more sustainable funding by redirecting a portion of the sales tax on gas to a local road and bridge matching fund and providing new tools to help locals meet their infrastructure needs. As the Crossroads of America, investing in our infrastructure is a critical economic development tool."
