Loser in the State's General Assembly
Capital Improvements Board bailout supporters were among the losers in the recently ended Indiana General Assembly, writes Paul Ogden. "CIB lobbyists were all over the Statehouse for the regular and special session. Wonder how much that cost the CIB. In the end, they only got a loan, the right to raise the hotel tax and right to raise additional taxes in 2013, long after Mayor Ballard's political career will have come to a merciful end. CIB proponents did not have a Plan B if they did not get the tax increases they wanted."
