INDIANAPOLIS (WHAS11) -- Legislation to expand mass transit in Indiana is facing roadblocks in the state senate. Republicans are questioning the cost of the proposed 10 year, $1.3 billion expansion.

It includes improving bus service and a rail project.

The bill was passed by the House on Monday, Feb. 25.

It would allow ten counties near Indianapolis to hold a referendum to let voters decide if they want to raise taxes to pay for their share.
