Last updated on Thursday, April 13, 2006

(INDIANAPOLIS) - State Budget Director Chuck Shalliol has signed the 75-year Indiana toll road lease.

The $3.85-billion deal for the operation of the toll road is with a private Australian-Spanish consortium.

Within hours of the signing, a lawsuit was filed to block the agreement. Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana filed suit in St. Joseph County arguing the agreement violates Indiana's constitution.
