Indiana lawmakers appear to be a lot closer to reaching an agreement on road funding.

At a conference committee hearing today, lawmakers hinted that they could be able to reconcile the difference in the respective House and Senate Republican plans.

House Republicans have included tax increases in their proposal to pay for state and local roads, long term.  Senate Republicans did not go that route, however they did give local governments more flexibility in raising revenue for projects.

Indy Politics spoke with Republican State Senator Luke Kenley as well as Rep. Ed Soliday about the efforts to reach a compromise.  We also hear from Democratic State Rep. Dan Forestal who says lawmakers to solve most of their road funding issues by putting a break on scheduled tax cuts for corporations, financial services and inheritance taxes.
