Wish TV: Mixed reaction to delayed transit bill
A senate committee’s decision to put the brakes on the mass transit plan out of Marion County received mixed reaction on Tuesday.
Polarized groups expressed either disappointment or elation depending on their support or opposition of the bill.
Grassroots organization, American for Prosperity said it has spoken against the plan for a so-called “silent majority.” It praised the State Senate’s Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee for sending the bill to a study committee.
“We feel that it’s fully appropriate that the statehouse will take a much closer look at this before we get into something that we could really regret one day,” director Chase Downham said.
Downham said Americans for Prosperity did not oppose the interest in upgrades to transportation systems but has spoken against the government’s reliance on tax increases to foot the transit plan’s bill.
