Governor Eric Holcomb has proposed a nearly 300 million-dollar plan to benefit several projects around the state.

Holcomb is recommending using the nearly 300 million dollars in reserves outlined in the state’s 2019 fiscal year close-out report. He says the report, which was released Thursday, shows “Indiana’s economy is on a roll” and the state is experiencing “robust revenue growth.”

The governor recommends using the funds to pay for several one-time capital projects and finish the free-flow project of US 31.

He is recommending that the legislature strongly consider the proposal when the General Assembly returns in January, to keep the Hoosier State competitive with other states in the Midwest.
