Transportation and Land Use

Central Indiana Transit: HB 1073

Authors: Representative Espich (R-Uniondale)

This bill authorizes Indianapolis (Marion County) and the surrounding counties to establish a regional transit authority, and impose a very modest local income tax to pay for an improved regional transit system, as long as voters approve in a referendum.

Where is it now?
HB 1073 failed in House Ways and Means committee by a vote of 10 to 11.  It had bipartisan support, but lost a number of votes due to controversial labor language in the bill.  House and Senate leadership have declared the bill dead for the session.

Action Steps: Please contact your state senator and representative, and urge them to support funding for mass transit in 2013!
