CHICAGO — A committee of Indiana legislators will hold the first in a series of hearings today to review the state's infrastructure needs — estimated at $5.4 billion with an $800 million annual shortfall going forward — as proceeds from the long-term lease of the Indiana Toll Road are set to run out by 2015.

The 25-member bipartisan committee will take testimony from federal, state, and local officials as well as business representatives to examine the state's infrastructure needs through 2035. It expects to consider funding sources next year.
