Road Funding in Indiana
Wednesday, October 7, 2015, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT
Professor Larry DeBoer, Purdue University, Agricultural Economics
There seem to be orange barrels on every road in Indiana, yet funds for road construction and repair are a problem. Where does money for road construction and maintenance come from and how has it changed over time? Has it kept up with the needs of Indiana residents? What are some policy options available for local governments, and for the state? Join Larry DeBoer and Tamara Ogle to discuss road funding issues and options in Indiana.
