 IBJ Staff
A state budget was passed June 30, but it’s balanced on the backs of poor children. Legislators deserve praise for at least slightly increasing overall education funding, but because of a flawed funding formula, urban districts such as Indianapolis Public Schools actually will lose money in the next two years.

EDITORIAL: Leadership void stymied special legislative sessionRestricted Content

July 6, 2009
 IBJ Staff
The legislative session that concluded June 30 with passage of a two-year budget left a bad taste in our mouths. For starters, legislators lacked the courage to tackle local government reform—even though cash-strapped units of government desperately need the millions of dollars in savings they would generate. In short, they put political cronyism ahead of the interests of the state.

As both House Speaker Pat Bauer, D-South Bend, and House Republican Leader Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, see it, this is definitely a "Republican-flavored" budget. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels laid the framework, and legislators from both sides of the aisle largely abided by his bottom lines of spending, state agency cuts and surplus.

  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 !!!
