Governor Mike Pence has announced more than $500 million in funding for Indiana counties, cities and towns. The money is part of a massive transportation funding plan.
The funding includes $435 million in Local Option Income Tax money as well as an additional $70 million for local government rainy day funds. The distributions are part of Senate Enrolled Act 67, which was signed into law last month.
In a release, Governor Pence said, "Here in the Crossroads of America, roads mean jobs. In this past session of the Indiana General Assembly, we committed to bringing significant new funding for local governments with regard to transportation infrastructure, and I thank our legislators for their leadership on this issue. I was pleased to sign into law SEA 67 and today, these funds will now be available in communities throughout Indiana."
