Tolls will increase the cost of delivering goods and services, putting Indiana businesses at a competitive disadvantage and increasing the cost of living for residents. The facts are clear:
If tolls are built along I-70 and I-65, businesses along those routes will see increased shipping costs. Those businesses will also lose customers as consumers drive around the tolls to avoid new toll taxes. And ultimately, with increased costs and decreased revenue, businesses will be forced to shutter, hurting economic development in Indiana.
