Indiana House Approves Gas Tax Increase

Road Money

A bill that would increase the gas tax and vehicle registration fees is moving to the Indiana Senate for consideration.

The measure was passed by the House yesterday on a 61-to-36 vote.

The bill would also give the governor the ability to implement tolling without the approval of state lawmakers.

Not included is a cigarette tax hike.

The House will vote separately on that piece of the plan later this month.
