GOV signing gary bill 1
Indiana Governor Mike Pence was at Gary City Hall this afternoon for a ceremonial signing of Senate Bill 585, also known as the Gary Bill. Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says this legislation represents a great opportunity for economic development in Gary and all of Northwest Indiana.
Governor Pence told those in attendance that when he became Governor that his ambition was to be the Governor of all Hoosiers and to make job creation, job one, and today's ceremonial signing is further evidence that that decree.
The legislation will provide funding for a feasibility study for both a trauma center and teaching hospital, as well as a study to expand the Port of Indiana to Lake County. The bill will also provide the City of Gary with three-million dollars for the Gary Sanitary District, lifts Lake County property tax caps, and resets membership on the Gary Airport Board, requiring five-years of experience in business or aviation management.
