Topic: Update on Transportation Funding In Indiana

2017 Indiana General Assembly + Road Funding = Good for Indiana! Plus other Triumphs, Defeats and Surprises at the Statehouse

Beth will give some history & perspective on why so much emphasis on Road Funding now, and some of the effort to get it passed, as part of the larger view of this session, and the competing interests for funding and time, coalition work, relationship-building, and managing message with different audiences.
