State Roads Commission to meet Monday

18 Dec 2016 3:37 PM | John Ketzenberger (Administrator)

Members of the Funding Indiana's Roads for a Safer, Stronger Tomorrow Commission will meet Monday morning to hear the findings of the interim group's four meetings. 

The FIRSST, which was part of a comprehensive transportation bill lawmaker's approved during the 2016 session, was charged with examining the state's transportation needs, assessing the funds available and prioritizing both projects and funding sources. 

It's widely expected the commission will recommend increasing the state's gasoline tax, linking it to an economic indicator so future increases are automatic and a variety of other new funding means. 

The Commission's recommendation will carry significant weight heading into the legislative session set to begin Jan. 3.
