Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) on the third reading passage of House Bill 1002, the House Republican road funding plan:

STATEHOUSE (Feb. 16, 2017) – “Hoosier drivers and businesses across our state recognize the critical need for improvements to our roads and bridges. That’s why House Republicans focused on crafting a conservative plan to reform the way we fund infrastructure needs for the Crossroads of America. Reps. Ed Soliday and Tim Brown have worked hard on this legislation, which is centered on data-driven and responsible solutions. Today’s passage of House Bill 1002 marks an important step and is the culmination of a 6-year long process of determining our funding needs and the best options to meet those needs. We look forward to working with our counterparts in the Senate to continue the conversation.”

House Bill 1002 now moves to the Senate for further consideration. Click here for a link to the bill.
