EDITORIAL: Give Indianapolis Motor Speedway the tax breakRestricted Content

February 16, 2013

EDITORIAL: Legislature isn't in protection gameRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Try as we might, we just don't get it. Oh, we understand why liquor store owners don't want Indiana lawmakers to lift long-standing restrictions on Sunday alcohol sales. There's little doubt the state's ban on most carryout sales helps them manage costs and stave off competition from big-box retailers. They admit as much (among other rationale).

EDITORIAL: If it's a priority, fund accordinglyRestricted Content

 IBJ Staff
Gov. Mike Pence insists Indiana can cut taxes, maintain its strong financial position, and fund its priorities, and that the tax cut will stimulate spending and put businesses in a position to add jobs. Whether that’s realistic depends to a great extent on how the state’s priorities are defined and how much should be spent on them.

Daniels did his jobRestricted Content

 IBJ Staff
To put in perspective the flurry of activity that has been the eight years of the Daniels administration, one must think back to the state he inherited following a succession of solid, but caretaker, governors.

EDITORIAL: Time for Pence to ditch tax cutRestricted Content

December 29, 2012
Incoming Indiana Gov. Mike Pence may have spent a decade as a U.S. representative. But he is a neophyte when it comes to managing the state budget—unlike legislative warhorses such as Speaker of the House Brian Bosma and Sens. David Long and Luke Kenley.

EDITORIAL: Doubling down on life sciences is right ideaRestricted Content

December 22, 2012
 IBJ Staff
The Indiana Economic Development Corp.’s proposal to create a $30 million venture fund dedicated to life sciences startups is good news for a valuable sector of our state economy that has been losing out to the more investor-friendly high-tech sector.

EDITORIAL: Pence should stick with business game planRestricted Content

November 10, 2012
 IBJ Staff
It will soon be time for newly elected governor Mike Pence to prove his critics wrong. Pence beat challenger John Gregg in a closer-than-expected race in which he was accused of using his campaign’s major themes—jobs and the economy—to hide his conservative social agenda from Hoosier voters.

EDITORIAL: IndyCar board overreactedRestricted Content

November 3, 2012

The board's dismissal of CEO Randy Bernard seemed to cut a change agent off at the knees, and that could come back to haunt them.

September 29, 2012
 IBJ Staff
A few weeks ago in this space, we called for someone—anyone—to step forward to take a leadership role in resolving the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s labor dispute. The silence has been deafening.

EDITORIAL: More Brainard scrutiny overdueRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
 IBJ Staff
In a former life, Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard was a real estate attorney. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that splashy development projects have been a hallmark of his four terms as mayor.

EDITORIAL: Stop obstructing TIF projectsRestricted Content

September 15, 2012
We applaud the move by certain Democrats on the City-County Council last month to advance a proposal to expand the downtown tax increment financing district. Now we’re counting on the full council to pass it when it’s eligible for consideration at the council’s Sept. 17 meeting.

September 8, 2012
 IBJ Staff

September 1, 2012
 IBJ Staff
Investors heaped criticism on former WellPoint Inc. CEO Angela Braly and called for her ouster in the weeks leading up to her resignation Aug. 28, but her leadership of the health-insurance giant might not be judged so harshly once the smoke clears.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
