Communities across Indiana would receive more than $400 million for road and bridge projects under a plan unveiled Thursday by State Senator Brandt Hershman.
The Republican from Buck Creek wants to give back to municipalities and counties some of the local income tax dollars the state holds in reserve.
Typically, local governments only get those dollars if the reserve balance exceeds 50 percent of annual collections.
The balance is currently around 25 percent. But Hershman says he wants to give locals that money, about $418 million, for roads.
