Indianapolis Star Columnist Refers to Libertarians as Part of the Opposition to New I-69

Indianapolis Star columnist Ruth Holladay refers to Libertarians as being part of the opposition to the new terrain I-69 in an article in last Sunday's Indianapolis Star titled "Opponents haven't lost drive to defeat I-69".

The Libertarian Party of Indiana's position is that the cost/benefit analysis clearly supports the alternative of upgrading I-70 to Terre Haute, a bypass around Terre Haute and converting US 41 to interstate quality standards. It is less expensive to do, causes less damage to the environment, and requires the taking by eminent domain of much less property. These are all good reasons why the new terrain I-69 is a very bad idea.
