CHICAGO — Indiana has filed a securities fraud complaint against Chrysler LLC related to the issuance of $14 million of tax-exempt revenue bonds for a proposed transmission plant whose financing has since collapsed.

The $530 million plant, located in Tipton County was a joint venture between Chrysler and German transmission maker Getrag Transmission LLC. Tipton officials agreed to issue tax-exempt bonds to finance water and waste infrastructure projects as well as set up a tax-increment financing district around the plant to supplement financing of the deal.
