Note to the Press: Please include the following statements from State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) in your coverage of the Next Level Roads Plan announced recently by Gov. Eric Holcomb:

STATEHOUSE (July 14, 2017) – “Over the next five years Hoosiers are going to see improvements in Indiana’s infrastructure statewide and here at home,” said State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler). “Warrick County will receive over $18 million, Pike County will receive more than $19 million, and Spencer County will receive nearly $15 million to improve local roads and bridges. This investment will result in resurfacing for nearly 300 miles of roads and rehabilitating 35 bridges in our area. Funding was made possible thanks to a long-term and responsible road funding package passed by the legislature this session. My goal was to ensure that our communities were included in the larger effort to take our state to the ‘next level.’”
