Governor Mike Pence is noncommittal on whether Indiana will support the future of the Hoosier State Passenger Rail Line with state dollars.  Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pence shifted responsibility to local communities along the line that runs between Chicago and Indianapolis.

Federal funding for the Hoosier State Line was cut off last year.  The state and local communities along the line reached a temporary funding agreement that keeps the route running through October.
