Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Aug. 2, 2013) — Area roads, bridges and highways will benefit from significant funding increases compared to current funding levels in the next two years, said State Sen. Sue Landske (R-Cedar Lake).

“Better roads and bridges benefit the entire community,” Landske said. “It’s important that employers can count on our infrastructure to transport their goods and services.”

Landske said local counties are slated to get the following funding increases over the next two years:

· Lake County: $42,703,298 ($10,792,961 increase)
· Newton County: $4,510,733 ($1,140,529 increase)
· Benton County: $4,440,319 ($1,122,713 increase) 

During the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly passed the fiscal year 2014-2015 state budget, which increased transportation funding by $210 million per year. This includes $100 million for local units each year.
