Indiana Lawmakers are opposing Governor Eric Holcomb’s unilateral move to spend $1 billion in proceeds from a renegotiated Indiana Toll Road lease without their oversight.
The Republican governor announced the windfall in September, which will lead to a major increase in toll fees for drivers of large commercial vehicles. His administration argues that the deal and the spending is well within their legal authority and will go toward road construction and some of Holcomb’s pet projects.
Indiana Legislators from both parties voiced concern over his handling of the matter. They all say they are for infrastructure projects, but they just would have liked to have known about it before hand.
