Hershman Files SB 67 to Provide $418 Million to Local Governments to Improve Roads

State Sen. Brandt Hershman, yesterday introduced legislation that would immediately provide $418 million to local governments to help improve local roads and bridges across the state. Hershman worked closely on the plan with Gov. Mike Pence who previously announced his 21st Century Crossroads plan to provide significant new funding for state roads over the next four years. Hershman said the legislation has the support of Gov. Mike Pence, who, like Republican leaders in the General Assembly, has made road funding a top priority for the 2016 session of the General Assembly. Earlier this year, Pence announced his 21st Century Crossroads Plan to provide $1 billion for state road funding over the next four years without raising taxes. Hershman filed SB 67 yesterday. The 2016 legislative session is scheduled to convene on Jan. 5.
