INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WPTA) - During its Friday session, the Indiana House passed a bill that would give Hoosier taxpayers a $225 refund.

Lawmakers say H.B. 1001 was created in an effort to help Hoosiers who have been impacted by inflation.

However, Senate leadership has already rejected the notion of those payments--setting up a future showdown between the two chambers. Instead, those lawmakers say they are looking at inflation relief in the form of suspending taxes on many utilities.

Governor Holcomb first introduced the idea of sending a $225 payment to taxpayers back in June following a surplus in the state reserves.
