John Gregg on Technology
$16B for water projects via Infrastructure Bank
Gregg understands the challenges Indiana faces when it comes to our aging and outdated water infrastructure. Hoosiers see the sewage overflow in the streets and in their basements. Parents get the letters from schools where water tested positive for
lead & water fountains are closed. Businesses cannot expand into rural areas where there is no infrastructure to provide water & process wastewater. Over the next 20 years, Indiana will need $16 billion to address these infrastructure needs for drinking
water, combined sewer overflow, wastewater, & storm water drainage. If we do not address Indiana's deteriorating water/sewer infrastructure now, the problems will only get worse and more expensive. This is a public health, economic development and
quality of life issue that can no longer be ignored.
A Gregg/Hale administration plans to address this need head on. Local governments will be able to apply to the Hoosier State Infrastructure Bank for water infrastructure improvement projects.

Roads and infrastructure are a priority
If elected in 2016, Gregg promised to work across party lines to develop a sustainable road funding plan that includes a state-funded rebuilding of the
Cline Avenue Bridge and work to attract high-paying jobs, not just a lot of minimum wage jobs.

Build roads & bridges, as well as broadband capacity
I'll focus on building up our infrastructure--and not just our roads and bridges--but our workforce, broadband capacity, renewable energy opportunities and
health care systems so regardless of where you live in Indiana, every Hoosier will have the chance to succeed.
