The article reports on the opposition of several groups regarding the plan to lease the Indiana Toll Road for 3.85 billion dollars. Campaign organizer Dave Menzer explained that the Indiana Constitution clarified that any sale of proceeds from lease or sale of a public asset should be used to pay down public debt. Part of the opposition is the environmental impact about the construction of the extension of Interstate 69, which would be funded in part by proceeds of the lease.
