A group of Indiana clergy members is urging state lawmakers to let voters decide the fate of mass transit.

Listen:

Dozens of ministers from more than 17 faiths gathered at the Statehouse Thursday. They're part of the group called IndyCAN or Indianapolis Congregation Action Network. They say mass transit is an important economic issue for Central Indiana and will determine future growth for the region.

Rev. Charles Henderson says many low-income Hoosiers need more viable ways to get to job locations. Henderson says boosting job opportunities for these people will help grow Indiana's overall economy. The group has launched what they call 40 Days of Prophetic Witness to advance the mass transit cause.
