Porter and Joseph Counties, IN

Type: RTA Participation/Creation

Outcome: Loss

Results: Failed, 5%-95% and 20%-80%

Voters in Porter and St. Joseph counties failed to approve the establishment of the Northern Indiana Regional Transportation District, which would have been able to impose an income tax of up to 0.25 percent in each member county. Only two of the four counties required by state law to place the measure on the ballot complied. It is unclear if the other two counties will still place the measure on a 2010 ballot. This issue may not be decided until May, as the NIRTD could still be established for all four counties if voters in both Lake and LaPorte approve.
