The man leading the charge for Central Indiana mass transit says it still has a good chance for ultimate approval.
Indy Connect Now Executive Director Ron Gifford says he believes the bill will move out of the Senate and the House and Senate will be able to work up a compromise. Gifford says the measure will definitely be in study committee this summer. Gifford says even given the current scenario, the measure will still be ready for a November 2014 referendum.
Gifford says he has assurances from lawmakers that mass transit is a top issue that needs to be addressed. He says he doesn't believe the issue is being "swept under the rug." He says they need more time studying the overall issue.
