Ind. Senate wants cash for expanded state highways

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Indiana Senate is pushing for a new budget that would expand highways across the state.

Senate Republicans want to pass a $30 billion budget they say would also cut the state's income tax by millions.

They want to put $200 million a year into more lanes on I-65 and I-70 all around Indiana. The money would also pay for the construction of a new state Commerce Connector highway.

House lawmakers want to use Indiana's extra money in the state's budget to fund better roads and education.

But Governor Mike Pence wants to spend the money on a large tax cut.
