From the NWI editorial board:
Wasteful, corrupt government continues in its course absent any meaningful consequences.
A welcome deterrent to such bad government arrived courtesy of the Indiana Legislature in 2013. The General Assembly passed a law allowing cities or towns to secede from wasteful townships when the assistance tax rates of those townships go higher than 12 times the state average.
Can you imagine paying 12x more than your neighbors throughout the state? No wonder people are fed up.
