A bill that would help fund up to $100 million in improvements at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is now in the hands of the full Senate.

The bill passed a state Senate committee last week. Under the proposal, the track would use tax money for upgrades like lights. That would allow for night racing for the first time ever.

Senate lawmakers could vote on it by the end of the month.

The measure would then head to the House.

    NO! Let the Hulman-George clan pay for their own business. Those of us in the outlying counties get nothing but TAXED for Indianapolis’s extravagances, it needs to STOP.

    Time for taxpayers to stop footing the bill for sports venues. Let the INS,the Colts and the Pacers pay their own way!
