Although he would not go into details, Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma says there’s agreement, in principle, between the House and Senate on a long-term road funding plan.
Lawmakers were deadlocked over a House proposal to shift all the sales tax on gasoline to pay for roads. The House plan called for moving the entire sales tax on gas to roads over a two-year period. The Senate had opposed that idea.
The Speaker would not comment on talk that the two sides had agreed on a 4-5 year shift, however, WIBC’s Eric Berman did speak with State Senator Luke Kenley who provided more details. But he did say the plan would please local governments.
Both House and Senate majority caucuses still have to sign off on the proposal.
You can hear Bosma in the Leon-Tailored Audio above. It runs about 12 minutes.
