The man leading the charge for Central Indiana mass transit says it still has a good chance for ultimate approval.

Listen:

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.
