An Indiana lawmaker has called on Gov. Mitch Daniels to raid the fund
created by leasing the Indiana Toll Road, and to use the money for flood
Floods recently struck Lake County, which is on the northern edge of
the state, causing damage that State Rep. Dan Stevenson, D-Highland, said will
likely exceed any federal aid that might be available.
Stevenson also called on Daniels to use his influence in Washington, DC, to gain additional federal aid.
Daniels promoted the lease of the toll road as a way to produce funds
for other highway projects throughout the state.
