Hoosiers Asked to Steer Mass Transit Talk
March 27, 2014 — Transportation officials say Hoosiers will have a say in the future of mass transit talk in the state’s capital.
It will be up to voters in Central Indiana to decide on the future of mass transit in their communities.
Gov. Mike Pence signed a bill on Wednesday that authorizes leaders in Marion, Madison, Johnson, Hancock, Hamilton and Delaware counties to seek voter permission to raise income taxes to fund expansion of mass transit.
Mark Fisher, vice president for government relations with the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, says in a statement, it’s a matter that should be debated at the local level.
