Lawmakers Push for Indiana Circuit Breaker Bail Out Bill

Indiana lawmakers are taking action on a circuit breaker bail out bill.

Tuesday, a senate tax committee passed the measure 12-to-nothing, sending it on to the full senate.

Under the bill, the state would take on a greater share of some costs now covered by local governments, like welfare expenses.

The bill would also allow counties to use the proceeds from an increased local option income tax to reduce their dependence on property taxes.

The house failed to pass it's property tax relief plan.
