WASHINGTON (WOWO) — President Biden passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act almost two years ago. One of its key features is expanding discretionary grant funding by 500%.

But Hoosier Representative Rudy Yakym expressed concern that Indiana is yet to receive its fair share of the available funding.

Yakym told U.S. Transportation Secretary and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg that Indiana is behind all U.S. territories receiving the funding.

Buttigieg said his department will work toward a more equitable funding solution for Hoosiers.

Perhaps Rudy should consider that the money should stay in Indiana rather than go to DC to get a percentage off the top before returning. The system is a scam. Not to mention that the spending he wants is not part of the 18 enumerated powers of congress detailed in Article I, Section 8, of the US Constitution. But there’s Rudy, advocating further violation of that document and his oath of office. You sir, border on being a fraud!!!
