Waltz changed emphasis of transit debateRestricted Content

July 13, 2013
Like Sen. Waltz, I will be serving on the legislative study committee dealing with the future of public transit for central Indiana. The committee has yet to meet and the senator had not shared his ideas with me, so I was interested in his thoughts [July 8]. He seems to have redefined our task.

June 15, 2013
