INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Senator Luke Kenley (R) and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard (R) presented the State's plan to bail out the Indianapolis Capital Improvement Board (CIB) today.  Instead of asking the users of CIB properties in Indianapolis to step up and pay their fair share first, lawmakers will be considering a statewide increase of alcohol taxes, ticket taxes, food and beverage taxes, and the Innkeepers tax.

Fenty still plans, however, to spend $4 million on an "Office of Community Affairs" so residents can "engage the District’s diverse communities in civic life" (a $1 million increase from last year,) increase the "Serve DC" budget to $4.2 million to promote "national service" and "volunteerism" and spend a whopping $97 million to promote concerts, conventions and sports events.
