Indiana Ranks First for Infrastructure

(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana is being recognized for its affordable living and top notch infrastructure.

State Representative Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso), a member of the House’s Roads and Transportation Committee, says he was proud to see a CNBC report this month ranking the Hoosier State #1 for infrastructure.

“We in the state legislature have worked very hard over the last ten years to produce a user paid for, quality infrastructure in Indiana,” said Soliday. “Not only roads and bridges but our ports and airports. Now were working on water and utilities.”

Indiana has invested around 30-billion-dollars into infrastructure efforts over the last decade. A separate list by U.S. News and World Report ranked Indiana among the most affordable states to raise a family and launch a business.

The unemployment rate dropped to 3.5-percent, lower than neighboring states.
