St. Joseph County could see some major circuit breaker relief following two major developments at the Indiana Statehouse.
Today, the Indiana Senate approved a bill that would raise the circuit breaker cap on businesses to three percent.
That means by 2010, the combined budget deficits of all governmental bodies in the county would drop to eight million dollars.
Without raising the cap county governments, including schools, would face combined deficits of 52 million dollars.
However there is one more step, now the bill must now be approved by the House.
