First they are trying to take more from Lake County Casinos:
Quote :
INDIANAPOLIS | Casino tax revenue paid to Northwest Indiana communities would be cut under legislation amended and approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday.
Then another rethug from Valpo is trying to make it easier to pass a Lake County Tax:
Quote :
INDIANAPOLIS | A Senate committee approved legislation Tuesday that may make it more palatable for the Lake County Council to enact an income tax, and thaw the state-imposed property tax levy freeze that has forced many Lake County cities and towns to make painful budget cuts.
Senate Bill 585, sponsored by state Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, was amended by the Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee to change existing state law on how money collected by a Lake County income tax must be spent.
...and finally they want to use some of our tax money to prop up Indy Speedway (but nothing for the Cline Ave. bridge)
Quote :
INDIANAPOLIS | Gentlemen, start your bailout.
The Indiana Senate voted 37-12 on Tuesday to wave the green flag on a plan to transfer up to $100 million in state tax revenue over the next 20 years to the privately owned Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Notice a trend...everything coming from the super-majority of rethugs in Indy...They hate us, but LOVE OUR MONEY...

House approves drug testing for some welfare recipients
Quote :
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana House voted 78-17 Monday to spend $2.7 million next year on a drug testing program for some welfare recipients that may save the state $1.5 million in denied benefits.

Those wacky rethuglicons...

What's even worse Chuck,is that Besides the fact that courts have already found these witchhunts to be unconstitutional,Indiana doubles down on their stupidity by proposing that they only test _some_ of the recipients,and thus opening themselves up to charges of profiling and discrimination.
