(BLOOMINGTON) - A Monroe County commissioner is pushing to invalidate a Bloomington planning panel's narrow vote that added a section of the Indianapolis-to-Evansville Interstate 69 extension to the group's local highway plan.

Mark Stoops alleges that last Friday's 7-6 vote by the policy committee of the Bloomington/Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization is invalid because one member failed to disclose a conflict of interest.

Stoops, who's a member of the MPO, said fellow member Bill Williams has a conflict of interest because he has a son who works for a subcontractor helping build the I-69 extension.

Monroe County Attorney Dave Schilling disagrees. He said the county legal department has advised Williams, who's the county highway director, that it doesn't believe the situation represents a conflict of interest.
