Leaders in the Indiana House and Senate have constructed a compromise package of controversial tax cuts for businesses.

Announced on Tuesday, the plan immediately drew criticism from leaders of city governments, who will have less money to work with.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and other mayors held a press conference last month to protest any harsh cuts.

Today's deal gives counties the option of eliminating the equipment tax for small businesses and companies relocating to Indiana.

It comes just days before the end of the legislative session.

The plan exceeds cuts the senate and house initially sought, but is still a fraction of what Gov. Mike Pence wanted when the session opened.
