State Representative John Price (R- Greenwood) authored House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1036, which removes a statutory provision prohibiting the construction of I-69 through Perry Township. Governor Pence ceremoniously signed HEA 1036 into law.
“This is a major win for the Crossroads of America,” said Rep. Price. “This law will enable INDOT to determine the best possible route for the final phase of I-69, connecting Indianapolis to Evansville.”
In 2006, the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation that would restrict building interstates through Perry Township. HEA 1036 would remove that statute and does not require INDOT to construct I-69 through Perry Township.
“I-69 connects southern Indiana to northern Indiana, making it an integral aspect of Indiana’s commerce industry,” said Rep. Price. “I am looking forward to the completion of INDOT’s study of possible routes and for the finalization of I-69.”
