INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The proposal for a mass transit system in Indiana could take a step forward at the Statehouse.
The bill has already passed the full house and the Senate Roads and Transportation Committee On Tuesday morning, the Senate Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee will consider the legislation.
After that, some Indiana Senate Majority members are hosting a meeting with the press to talk in more detail about the bill. Legislators may announce a proposal, turn it down or ask that changes be made.
Since it was introduced earlier this year, there have been concerns including will people really use a mass transit system and how much will it cost taxpayers?
The legislation would double the size of IndyGo, and add rail/bus lines connecting the city to outlying counties.
Those against the bill say their constituents worry that the legislation is a tax increase only with no real benefits to them.
But some in favor say the gas price increase could save people money if they use public transportation. Many ask what would you do if gas jumped to $4 or $5 per gallon? Would you take public transportation?
Just in the overnight hours Tuesday in and around Indianapolis, gas jumped anywhere from 16 to 45 cents per gallon.
